Meet the I AM Team. From our adults down to the infants we are dedicated to developing and growing God's church, His people. We strive to make ourselves a community here in the great city of El Paso that is working together as one body to teach and equip God's church to love and seek to be more and more like Christ every day. We also learn to accept our imperfections and to be vulnerable enough to be open so that God can work in us.
