Bill is conservative in his Biblical views, and believes in an inerrant; infallible; and authoritative Word of God. He believes it is the role of the pastor to preach and teach the Word of God; minister to the people; and let the Holy Spirit do the rest, such as bringing people to a saving knowledge of the Lord, and moving in their hearts to come to church to learn and grow in faith in the Lord. He is richly blessed to be called to be a servant of God and seeks only His will in his life.
