About Us

We are excited about what the Lord is doing among us today, and come and visit us this Sunday at 11:00 AM or Wednesday evening for Bible Study at 6:30PM.

    Hello Tracy, I’m just seeing your comment here. We are a loving, bible centered church with a small congregation. There is a variety type of music that is sung with a different choir throughout the month: Hymns are sung throughout the service from traditional to spirtuals and the choir selections offers the greatest diversity of songs. It is growing in the number of families and ministries but, not b/c we are seeking but b/c God’s word is going out and drawing in numbers. The church has a time for love offering and you can choose to contribute whenever you are able and willing to give. All events that take place at our church are free because we desire to reach the entire community. It is very diverse in every way that one can have diversity. As we serve the true and living God, it shows. We have bible study each Wednesday, and Men and Women’s Ministry, along with Sunday School for All ages. The only book that is given special preference is the Holy Bible but members of our congregation have free access to rightnow.media to use for their individual growth and family study. It also gives them access to alternative television; if they find few things or nothing savory on television for their children or themselves. We have a library with which members have access to but there is no other particular book that our church uses in their instruction of God’s word. God bless you in your efforts to find a church home.

    Hello. Will you tell me the kind of music which is sung at this church. Is it strictly hymns? Is it a mixture of praise music and hymns ?

    I am currently at a church which I am uncomfortable with in that I feel it is lukewarm, and often worldly . There seems to be much “showtime for the sheep”. I sit amongst people who hardly seem joyful, and who west solumn faces. I listen to many many soloists, and a worship team who often sings alone. This is not worship for me, and I really need and want true worship. I don’t want a “show” or a “feel good about yourself” sermon. Im not going to church so I can “feel good” for the week. Im searching and praying for genuine praise and worship. I want to praise with others and be joyful and glad.

    I am a born-again Christian. I read my Bible daily, and my relationship with Christ is a constant throughout each day.

    Tell me about your church. Are you filled with studies using videos and books written by Rick Warren or Others? Do you strive for numbers? Do you ask for more and more money every week to “build” your church in size without ministering to those who are currently there first?

    Strange questions perhaps. I’ve been praying for what seems such a long time to find a church which is truly God led, without man made rules, and with no watering down of the Scriptures.
