Stonecrest Church is fashioned in the '"simple church" model. Our leaders guide people through discipleship. God is the head of our Church and our leaders are servants to his people.
Pay careful attention to yourselves and to all the flock, in which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers, to care for the church...
