What would you say to someone who's thinking about giving your church a try?
"This is a church where we believe in building relationships with one another (and) strengthening our relationships with God," Ham said.
What do you believe is the biggest issue facing the faithful today?
"I believe the biggest issue that we face is an eternal issue," he said. "I believe that we face a crisis of realizing that God is who he says he is. Part of his creation must make a commitment to follow him, even when it's unpopular, politically incorrect, (or) when persecution is going to be endured. I believe our commitment to God is of primary importance."
