What is the meaning of the word Altus?
Altus is a Latin word that has a number of meanings: high, deep, profound, deeply-rooted. Our choice of the name Altus for this group reflects our desire "that Christ may dwell in our hearts through faith; that you, rooted and grounded in love, may have the strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that you may be filled with all the fullness of God." Ephesians 3:17-19
