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"

 

Hear my voice when I call, LORD; be merciful to me and answer me. My heart says of you, “Seek his face!” Your face, LORD, I will seek. Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, God my Savior. — Psalm 27:7-9a (NIV)

    Have you noticed how so much attention is being given to “how to deal with stress”, “improving your mental health” and other topics like this. It’s no surprise, because our world has lost its focus and has removed God from just about everything we do.

    People are searching for ways to cope.

    Paul in his writings wanted them to know that it takes the Holy Ghost in a person’s life. Until Jesus is given His rightful place in a person’s life and allowed to be Lord over that life, stress, low self-esteem, and confusion are going to control that life. “For without me ye can do nothing.

    “The Lord said through the Prophet Isaiah, Ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me. I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour. I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. Yea, before the day was I am he; and there is none that can deliver out of my hand: I will work, and who shall let it”(Isaiah 43:10-13).

    God will work if you will let Him. Be sure you don’t look elsewhere for your answers.
