We have a variety of ministries to meet every person's need, ministries to aid in the building of families and the changing of lives. We believe God has promised an outpouring of His Spirit in the last days. We invite you to come see for yourself what God is still doing today, for He still heals, saves, and has a profound impact on people's lives.
We love to praise and worship God. If you are tired of the same old thing, please, "Come Join Us!"

will come to know God, because they know you"
Thy righteousness also, O God, is very high, who hast done great things: O God, who is like unto thee! — Psalm 71:19 (KJV)
"A Word for the Journey"
Sun, Feb 19, 2017
In prayer the other day, I was praying, and I was praying over so many things. I was coming to the end of my time in prayer, and before I could say “Amen”, another prayer came out of my spirit.
I found myself praying, “Lord, I want to be found faithful”.
When my life is over, I don’t want any hidden things to be found in my heart. I want the Lord to be able to look at me and without hesitation say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of the Lord”.
Then the question came to me, “How can we be sure that we have done everything that we should?”. The answer to this question is so obvious, that I’m almost embarrassed to be writing this. Yet, I think there are those that would fear what the answer would be. The answer is simple, “just be faithful”. Be obedient to the Word of God and consistently follow his instructions. When there are things in your life that need correction, God’s Word will instruct you, and God’s Spirit will convict you. If you heed his correction, you will be faithful.
1 Corinthians 4:2 (KJV)
2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
