“Reaching those in need, with the love of JESUS in word and in deed. ”Our endeavor is to reach out to the hurting, hungry and lost in our community by sharing the love of JESUS CHRIST in a practical and tangible way. We believe there is no problem that the love of GOD cannot resolve, whether spirit, soul or body. As servants of GOD we are commissioned to feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, take in the stranger, and to visit the sick and imprisoned .Our heart’s desire is to go and embrace people where they are, just as JESUS came to where we were to meet our need. The love of GOD has been shed abroad in our hearts to be a light and a beacon to this community and to the world. To let all know the Blood of JESUS and the power of GOD’S HOLY SPIRIT still works. We pray that the peace and love of GOD would rule in your hearts according to the will of GOD in CHRIST JESUS our LORD.                                               

                                                        Your servant in the LORD,

Our objective through Christ Jesus is To preach the gospel of truth to the whole world, and to bring glad tidings of hope to those who have never heard. To share Jesus Christ to the confused, bound, and lame, so that those that are shackled and imprisoned can be free in Jesus name. We are called to be witnesses so the nations will know that Christ reigns and so when the people hear of the Savior, through faith, they can be saved from sin and shame. When this life is over, they can live in God’s eternal glory forever through Christ Jesus. We pray and believe that every person that isn't saved and is yoked spiritually, mentally, physically, with sin, sickness and shame, will be healed, delivered, and liberated in Jesus' name.

Mission Statement: Our mission is to educate our youth department to know and understand the core basic values of the bible, Learn who Jesus is and what it means to have a real personal relationship with him. We will also strive to develop and train our young children into our leaders for tomorrow, while providing great role models, a fun environment and social interaction for our children within our church and community. Objective: Our objective is to create a streamline youth department in various ministers within the church. To equip and develop our young people in all areas of their lives, while building the core values of the bible in our young children. In the book of  Proverbs 22:6 “ 6Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” We believe it is our responsibility to train our young children at a young age to love Jesus and to walk right before the lord, we want our young people to realize it is ok to be saved and have fun along the way. We are so excited for what the future holds for our young people and our youth Ministry, we believe that a personal relationship with Jesus is the most important thing to have in this world. In the book of Matthew 16:26 “ 26 For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?” We want to create a fun, loving, and educational environment for our young people to learn grow and develop into the men and women of God our children can become.  A quote we like love in children’s church “GOD DON’T MAKE NO JUNK, I KNOW I AM SOMEBODY!”     Thank you for visiting with us
