Pastor David Johnston


Praise ye the LORD. Praise God in his sanctuary: ...  

Psalms 150:1 (KJV)


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"


For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God. — John 3:20-21 (KJV)

    Tighten Up

    Sun, Sep 11, 2016

    Do you remember the song “Everybody ought to go to Sunday School”?  It may be a Sunday School song that was sung a long time ago, but it is still very true.

    This cute little song reflects the truth that church is important and should be a priority.  We all do what is important to us.  I realize that there are circumstances that hinder all of us… our ox gets in the ditch… However if the ox is in the ditch two or three times out of the month, time to get a new ox or fill in the ditch.

    Church going is like prayer and bible reading. We do it by choice, preparation and discipline.  Show me someone who does not go to church, I will show you someone who is not praying consistently or reading their bible either.  On the other hand, I have seen people make it to church when they were in pain, broke and the weather was terrible.

    Do you remember the parable of the wise man building his house on a rock.  Those that hear and obey the word of God, they and their house survive and are able to thrive when the storm comes and when it passes.

    Let me encourage you this day.  If you were in Church today, keep it up.  If not, tighten up.

    I was glad when they said unto me, “Let us go into the house of the Lord.”
