What to Expect

We are passionate about the coming of the Lord and the preparedness of mankind to meet Him!


Our assignment is not one that is taken lightly but with humble submission we pursue the purpose of God. It is a very important aspect of our services for the people of God to share their testimonies of His faithfulness in the midst of the congregation.


Our expectations of you, as a family member, are not unreasonable. More than anything else, we only want to enhance your walk with the Lord through wholesome fellowship. We welcome this relationship with one another in this beautiful family of God.
