Church Cross


Our passion centers around caring for families and individuals by encouraging stable healthy relationships, building self-esteem, providing opportunities to find biblical solutions to everyday on-going problems, and helping individuals see themselves how God sees them and reach their God-given destiny.


Our vision is to impact the World through and with the Word of God.

Vision + Leadership = Manifestation


Our Pastor teaches us the importance of living life in hope and standing in faith. She teaches us to live intentionally, not perfectly, and to receive the blessings of Heaven every day. We are reminded that, yes, we all fall short. But, God! He knows and His desire for us is to grow to make better choices in faith as we mature in Him.


"Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it." Proverbs 22:6 (NLT)

We offer Children's Church during the Sunday Worship service. 


Our food pantry is a community-based program that collects and safely stores food and household products for free distribution to low-income and needy members of the community. Please let us know if you, or someone you know, are in need.


We collect clothing donations from church and community members.  We have clothing and shoes to meet the needs of men, women, and children. Please let us know if you, or someone you know, are in need.
