Olive Tree Church isn’t an anthropocentric church (human beings as central entities), but CHRISTCENTRIC (Christ as the central entity) as it says in 1 Corinthians 1:30-31. That is why our organizational vision and mission doesn’t include Christ in our plans, but Christ is the one that includes us in His eternal plan. Our vision and mission are provided by, for and through Christ.
