So if this is your first time visiting us, we hope that you get to know Him as we do, because He is truly what life is all about for us!

 We are all about people. Every person who walks through our doors and visits us online is important to us and we do not want you to feel like just another number.  As a group of God’s people, we care about you and your family and we are here to feed you spiritually, as well as to help in any way we can.

Giving will lead to more blessings –


So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver. (2 Corinthians 9:7)


Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open for you the windows of heave and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it. (Malachi 3:10)

Our Beliefs

We believe the Bible to be, not man’s account of his efforts to find God, but rather an account of God’s effort to reveal himself for man. We believe that the Holy Bible was written by man; divinely inspired by God, influenced by the Holy Spirit, and that scriptures both old and new testaments contain all things necessary to salvation.
