WELCOME

GOD is calling YOU to HIMSELF. He wants you to go “deeper, wider, yet still”  in His presence.

This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24).  A warm welcome to our Internet visitors!  This Website is design to provide you with an opportunity to connect and fellowship with us, and most importantly, to learn more about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

It is our prayer that everyone who visits this site will experience the warmth of God’s love.  He is so faithful to us and His mercies are renewed everyday.   We encourage you to share His love with others. The word of God teaches us that when Jesus was asked which commandment is the greatest of all, He replied, “’Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22: 36-40.

We trust you will be personally inspired, challenged, and changed through the powerful and effective working of the Holy Spirit in your life.

Thank you for visiting us on this glorious Lord’s Day. His love brought us together this day in favor and in unity. We love you and we appreciate you taking time to visit with us.

By the way, if you desire prayer, fill out the Prayer Request form located on the “Connect” tab. We will prayer for your request.  Also, if you would like to make Jesus Lord and Master of your life, please say the Prayer of  Salvation located under the “Connect” tab and fill out the form to let us know of your decision to accept Christ.  One of our leaders will contact you to pray with and to encourage you.

May You Have Victory in HIM Today!

Abundance of Blessings,
