However, Baril Engine’s owner believes our purpose should be about more than rebuilding great engines. Our purpose is to love the Lord our God in everything we do and to love our neighbors as ourselves. (Matthew 22:36-40). We strive to conduct our business in ways that leave evidence of our relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is a high standard, and sometimes we fall short, but we persevere nonetheless.
