28 Then one of the scribes [an expert in Mosaic Law] came up and listened to them arguing [with one another], and noticing that Jesus answered them well, asked Him, “Which commandment is first and most important of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The first and most important one is: ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord; 30 and you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul (life), and with all your mind (thought, understanding), and with all your strength.’ 31 This is the second: ‘You shall [unselfishly] love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”
Mark 12:28-34 (AMP)
Hey! Thanks for stopping by!
We are Pastors Eric and Jalima Cook – often referred to as Pastor E & Pastor J. We are originally from Philadelphia, PA, but God led us to the Kansas City, MO area 5 years ago.
We began our journey in ministry together in college, and now, after serving in Christian ministry for over 15 years in various pastoral and ministerial roles, we are moving into our next phase of ministry...Vision City Church! We have been married for 14 years and blessed with 4 children- Moriya, Noah, Nathan, & Mikayla and our fur-baby, Cookie.
We are beyond excited and humbled by the opportunity to serve the amazing Kansas City community!
Eric & Jalima
WHAT IS VISION CITY CHURCH ALL ABOUT?
Vision City Church is a new church launching in the Kansas City metro area. We believe that loving God, loving others, and loving yourself is the key to living out God's purpose. We desire to see generations have life-changing encounters with God through the power of the Holy Spirit and His son Jesus Christ.
Pray for us as we prepare to serve you and this city.
Eric and Jalima Cook
