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!

As I was reading my New Testament this week, I was reminded of an old hymn. You may have heard me quote that old hymn previously, but it fits with what that Scripture brought to mind, so I will quote the hymn again. The portion that came to mind goes like this:

“I once was an outcast stranger on earth
A sinner by choice and an alien by birth
But I’ve been adopted, my name’s written down
An heir to a mansion, a robe, and a crown
I’m a child of the King….”

Often, when a person considers becoming a follower of Jesus through salvation, or when a believer considers doing ministry for Jesus, the devil attacks immediately with doubts. He quickly reminds us of our sinful past and tells us how unqualified we are. “God can’t save someone who did what you did. God cannot use you in ministry because of your sinful past. You would be an embarrassment to the Lord’. The devil pours out his lies. If we don’t recognize those lies we can miss the blessing of God.

What Scripture was I reading? The first chapter of Matthew. There we learn of the genealogy, the Family Tree, of King David, and also King Jesus. As we read that list of Jewish men on the Family Tree, we suddenly read that one of them married Rahab. Who was Rahab? She was an idol worshipper, a non-Jew, from Jericho. She was also a prostitute. Later we read about Ruth. She was an idol worshipper from Moab. Also a non-Jewish woman. Two very unqualified women to be in the Family Tree of Jesus. Yet, at some point they came to the place and time where they became believers in the Living Lord God of Israel. That made them qualified, worthy to be ancestors of Jesus.

If the Lord can take these two women with the baggage from their past life and use them, He can save and use you, my Friend. God is a miracle working God. Recognize the devil’s lies, ignore him, and follow Jesus.

The writer of the hymn I quoted describes himself as “a stranger on earth, an outcast, a sinner by choice, an alien by birth”. That sounds like someone sure to be disqualified. BUT, “PRAISE THE LORD”, Jesus changed him. Jesus adopted him into the Family of God. He is now a child of the King. He is now entitled to a “mansion, a robe, and a crown”.

I am so happy that from the beginning of time the Lord has been adopting into His Family the unqualified. Since the Bible teaches that every one of us is a sinner who falls short of the grace of God, then no one, not a single one of us, is qualified for Heaven. But, HALLELUJAH, Jesus died on the cross, shed His blood, to qualify us for adoption into the Family of God. Receive Jesus. Thank Him. Love Him. Follow Him.
