Weekly Services


We believe that it is possible for any person, in any condition or in any situation to be transformed and changed by an encounter with God no matter where they are in life's journey. We love to see people changed by the power of God, for the glory of God. Our goal is to be a ministry that is not confined with a box. We don't want to be the church that separates or segregates people. The heart of this church is to minister to people of any race, any social status, any age, and any denominational background. Our prayer is that you feel love, power, and the presence of God the moment you walk through the doors.


God’s Word is absolute Truth. We accept the Holy Bible as God’s authoritative Word. God moved by the awesome power of the Holy Spirit enabling man to write the inerrant, infallible truth of God for mankind. (2 Tim 3:16-17; 2Peter 1:19-21; Rev. 22:19; Rom 10:8-13)
