Thank you for visiting St. Luke Church of God in Christ online.
Everyone is accepted here and expected not only to hear the Word of God but to embody it! You are expected to BECOME all that God has called you to be. You are expected to GROW spiritually, intellectually, socially, in good health, economically and emotionally. It is my sincere desire to see you transformed from the inside out through a relationship with Christ. One- by-one we can ignite great change and transformation in the present world.
I have a real connection with women because we are God's brainchild and design. We possess beauty, sensitivity, and intelligence. We experience God in ways unknown to man in creation, in childbearing, in birthing and in bearing pain. God has marvelously equipped us to see and sense his awesomeness through our own unique experiences. While we are different from men, God intended women to compliment men as their fulfillment. Thus, in Genesis 5:2, "Male and female created he them: and blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when they were created." Please note that God called them both Adam. It is clear that God wanted them to function as one unit. This oneness glorifies our Creator. That is why it is a pleasure to work alongside of my husband in this great ministry.
Men and women of God, it is our desire and commitment to lead you to a place of wholeness and wellness by creating opportunities for you to be changed, moved and inspired. Uniting with us will also allow you a chance to connect with people and together contribute to each other’s growth and to a greater good.
I lift you up in prayer every day that you will be charged with the Holy Spirit, prepared to face every tomorrow, and strengthened in every difficult hour. Remember that you are stronger than you feel, more blessed than you think, and more powerful than you will ever know.
I hope to have the pleasure of meeting you in person here at St. Luke Church.
Lady Vernesta T. Austin
