We believe the scripture of the Old and New Testaments to be the inspired Word of God. This is the word that we live by to rule our faith and practice. Our mission is to seek and minister to the lost, presenting to them the gospel that they may know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We assemble together to be led by the Holy Spirit in our worship.  We believe in promoting spiritual growth among new believers & maturing Christians and to encourage one another in Christian love. 


Sunday School begins at 10:00 AM followed by Worship Service at 11:00 AM. We also provide Children’s Worship Service every Sunday during our eleven o’clock worship hour. Wednesday night services are held at 6:30 PM. Please see the Weekly Schedule or Upcoming Events section for more information. We would love for you to come worship with us in the Lord’s house.

God Bless You!

Newsletter  June 20th


In one of my previous pastorates, I was out visiting one afternoon. I rang the doorbell at a certain house. A toddler came to the door. He peeped through a side window of the door and took off running. In a few moments, his Mother came to the door. She was doubled over, laughing. She told me that her son burst into the room where she was, excitedly yelling, “Mama, Mama, Jesus is at the door”. I joined her laughter. 

It was a logical conclusion for a 2-year-old. He went to church and heard all about how special and important Jesus was. Since I was up at the front, leading, and doing most of the talking, he just assumed I was the Jesus his teachers were describing. 

You and I know that I am not Jesus. I am not and will never be Him. [If you doubt it, ask my sweet wife. She will quickly tell you that I am very human.] Jesus is and will forever be, the One and Only Lord and Savior. Jesus was the perfect Son of God who died for our sin and who rose again. However, I do love Him, serve Him, follow Him, and endeavor to be like Him. I do hope and pray that others see Jesus in me. 

My afternoon visit was a vivid reminder to me, and I pray, an example to you, that we must always be aware that people are watching us. They are studying our lives. They want to know— Is this Jesus these people talk about on Sunday a reality in their lives? Does Jesus make a difference in the way they live 24/7? 

Remember the old hymn that says 
“Your life’s a book before their eyes 
 They’re reading it thro’ and thro’ 
 Say, does it point them to the skies 
 Do others see Jesus in you?”
