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 9:00 AM followed by Worship Service at 10:00 AM. We also provide Children’s Worship Service every Sunday during our ten 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 October 17th


Did you ever look at a certain person and say, “They succeeded because they had an unfair advantage”? Perhaps they were born with a natural beauty. Maybe they were born into a rich family. It could have been that they came out of college and immediately got the prestigious, high paying job you wanted. After all, their Daddy owned the company. At one time or another, most of us have said, “It just isn’t fair”.

Did you realize that you, as a true believer in Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, have an unfair advantage over every non-believing person on the world? 
Pastor, are you serious? Yes, I am serious. Consider two of many such verses: “The same Spirit that raised Christ from the dead, dwells in you”. [Romans 8:11 paraphrased] “Christ in you, the hope of glory”.  [Colossians 1:27]

Friend, if you are truly “born again”, the Bible says that you are a living, breathing, walking around, container of Almighty God. He lives in you. Think of the advantage that truth gives you in every area of your life! 

    God in you is wisdom

    God in you is power

    God in you is love

    God in you is righteousness

    God in you is protection

    God in you is overcoming victory

No matter what the situation, you have resources no non-believer has. No wonder Paul could write, “We are more than conquerors through Him who loved us”. [Romans 8:37] Consider also, “The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God, to the pulling down of strongholds”. [2 Corinthians 10:4]

Please do not let the devil convince you that you are a poor, powerless, worm in the dust. Recognize the truth that Almighty God lives in you. Lift up your head. Live like an overcoming Champion! Use your “unfair advantage” to defeat the devil. Use it as you love others. Use it as you live your daily life.

The devil ought to hate to see you get out of bed each morning. Why? Because he knows that you know who you are in Christ. Also, because he knows that he has no power against you when you resist him in Jesus’ Name, and that the Jesus in you is going to make you, “prosper, and be in health, even as your soul prospers”. [3 John 2]
