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"

 

When my heart was grieved and my spirit embittered, I was senseless and ignorant; I was a brute beast before you. Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand. You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory. — Psalm 73:21-24 (NIV)

 

"A Word for the Journey"

    Press On

    Sat, Jan 20, 2018

    The scripture tells us that God has placed eternity in the heart of every man.  As Apostolics, shouldn’t we have a more ‘eternal’ way of thinking. We know that this world is not our home. When the Lord returns everything will be changed. Everything will be new. Our home here on earth is only a temporary residence.

    If we could truly grasp this, we would realize the unimportance of so much that we hold to here. This can be a hard concept because none of us can really understand what heaven would be like. We haven’t seen it, touched it, smelt it, or experienced it. We may get small glimpses now and then, but that is nothing in comparison to what it would be like.

    I believe if we could just see what has eternal value in what we do and say, it can be transforming. Knowing this can help us to ‘press on’ with God. To ‘press on’ to receive the breakthrough we so desire. To ‘press on’ to be more Christ-like. To ‘press on’ despite the odds stacked up against us. For nothing else the world has to offer is as important as pressing on in God.
