Luke 10:27

27And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. (KJV)

2 Corinthians 8:9

9For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich. (KJV)

Proverbs 21:13

13Whoso stoppeth his ears at the cry of the poor, he also shall cry himself, but shall not be heard. (KJV)

Proverbs 28:27

27He that giveth unto the poor shall not lack: but he that hideth his eyes shall have many a curse. (KJV)

James 2:14-17

14What doth it profit, my brethren, though a man say he hath faith, and have not works? can faith save him? 15If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, 16And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body; what doth it profit? 17Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone. (KJV)

1 John 3:16-18

16Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 17But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? 18My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. (KJV)

About Brandon Hembree: Pastor Brandon was born and raised in Mississippi. He graduated from a small Christian college in Clinton, MS in 2007 with a degree in political science and communication. After spending a year in law school, he surrendered to God’s call to be a pastor. Brandon has served vocationally in ministry since he was 18 years old, in which he served as a youth minister. He moved to Northern VA to answer the call as a youth pastor in May 2009 at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Manassas. After fulfilling many different roles throughout his time there as teaching pastor and providing leadership to many different ministries, he once again was challenged by The Lord and his local church to start a new church so that new people could be reached. On the same day, December 18, 2011, Brandon married his wife, Ellen, and they were commissioned to the mission field of Fairfax, VA. The heartbeat of Brandon’s ministry is having a front row seat to life change by proclaiming The Gospel of Jesus Christ. He is actively engaged in the community, serving on the Board of Directors for Cutting EDGE Ministries, a non-profit in NOVA focused on bringing The Gospel to public high schools. He is a baseball enthusiast and coffee-addict.
