"Where there is no vision, the people perish." Proverbs 29:18

...To go into all the world teaching simple truths in God's word on a level that can be easily understood so that the hearer will acquire faith to act on that word; thereby transforming their lives by the renewing of their minds and empowering them to use the word as a change agent to change their circumstances, their families, their communities, and ultimately the whole world....


We believe:

  • Jesus Christ is Lord.

  • Jesus Christ is the Son of God.

  • Jesus died on the cross for our sins, but rose from the dead and sits at the right hand of the Father interceding for us.

  • If we confess with our mouths and believe in our hearts, that we are saved.

  • In the indwelling presence in the Person of the Holy Spirit.

  • That the gifts of the Holy Spirit are for the church today.

  • In giving tithes and offerings as commanded in the Scriptures.

  • In divine healing.

  • In the rapture of the saints, the tribulation, the millennium and eternal life to be spent in either heaven or hell.
