It’s no accident that we’re engaging in a virtual meeting today. While you are here, we’d like to express our gratitude and introduce a church that is living by faith and growing by grace. Simply put, our goal is to meet the needs of God’s people while demonstrating principals, patterns and practices that are biblically based.
Truly, we want to meet you where you are. Whether you are broken physically, financially, emotionally or spiritually, we’re here to serve as your catalyst to Christ. For with Christ, there is nothing that we can’t overcome. Healing is possible. Victory is possible. Life, more abundantly, is possible so the Bible tells us in Matthew 19:26, “… with God all things are possible.”
I’m thankful to say, God is a keeper of His word for he has blessed our family abundantly. We are no different from you so just try God at His word. And should you choose this journey, prepare for a rewarding trip that may not be what you expect, rather an absolute out of this world experience!
Wishing you all the best,

We believe in one God who is creator of all things and exists in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
- JESUS CHRIST
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. We believe in His virgin birth (Matt. 1:23), His sinless life (Heb. 4:15; 7:26), His atoning death on the cross (1 Cor. 15:3), His resurrection from the dead (John 11:25; 1 Cor. 15:4), His exaltation to the right hand of the Father (Heb. 1:3), and that He will return again to reign (Acts 1:11; 1 Tim. 6:13-16).
- HOLY BIBLE
We believe the Holy Bible to be the complete revelation of God’s will for the salvation of men and the divine authority on life-circumstances for all Christians.
- THE CHURCH
We believe the church encompasses true followers of God who are called to worship Him, to disciple believers, and to proclaim the Gospel to the world.
- HOLY ORDINANCES
We abide by One Lord, One Faith and One Baptism. We believe that water baptism by immersion and the Lord’s Supper are commanded by Him and are, therefore, to be observed by the church.
We believe that Christ died on the cross and on the third day, He arose with all power. Thus, all who receive Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit, saved by grace and become children of God who receive everlasting life.
