Our Mission: Growth, Spiritually - Individually - Numerically
Our Purpose: To be an end-time Apostolic Church in Passion, Purpose and Practice
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!"
"Live in such a way that those who know you but don't know God,
will come to know God, because they know you"
Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. — Philippians 2:5-8
"A Word for the Journey"
Sun, Apr 23, 2017
You’re never too old, and it is never too late for God to use you. Moses was eighty years old when he got his assignment, and Caleb was 85 when God gave him his mountain. If anybody could have retired comfortably, it would have been Abraham. But God came knocking. In Genesis 12 we find God telling him to pack up, leave everything behind, and take off on a journey – to somewhere.
Why would an old guy like Abraham pack up and leave for a wilderness? Why would God choose this man that had long left behind the prime years of his life?
Hebrews 11:8 (KJV) 8 By faith Abraham, when he was called to go out into a place which he should after receive for an inheritance, obeyed; and he went out, not knowing whither he went.
He had the ability to hear God. He had the ability to believe what God said. The ability to walk away from security for the sake of the call of God. The ability to see and stay focused on the mission. The ability to accomplish the mission.
I wonder if there were times when Abraham thought about turning back. If he did, there must have been a voice that said, Abraham, “It ain’t over until God says its over.”
He never said it would be easy, But Jesus defeated all your enemies, way before the fight began. Remember, the impossible is God’s chance to work a miracle. So just know that it ain’t over – until God says its over
