Worship is one of our core values

Greetings E-news Friends,

 

You are Gifted!  

One of our core values at Briarcliff is the conviction that every believer is given a special ability to do certain things well. This is one of our Briarcliff Prayers. We want every person in our church to discover their God given design and engage in a joyful way that helps them grow and glorify God.  This Sunday we will look at what the bible says about how rich you are and the special way you can grow in Christ.
