A Word from Our Pastor

We are a Jesus Church! We worship Jesus…We are led by Jesus…Our salvation depends on Jesus! One of my favorite songs goes like this:

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus; there’s just something about that name.
Master, Savior, Jesus, like the fragrance after the rain;
Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, let all Heaven and earth proclaim
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there’s something about that name.
Kings and kingdoms will all pass away,
But there’s something about that name.

Join with me today as we focus our thoughts on the name of Jesus!

In His Love,
Pastor Danny

Midweek Bible Studies


Prayer Meeting/Bible Study
Led by Brother Danny
Wed @ 6pm in the Choir Room

These are confusing times for many Christians. Traditional biblical values are not only rejected; it seems as if they’re attacked on every front. It has all happened at warp speed, leaving many spiritually and culturally disoriented or even fearful, frustrated, and angry. How can we spiritually survive in an increasingly spiritually hostile environment?
