WELCOME

And ye shall serve the Lord your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.” ~Exodus 23:25
A word spoken to us from the Lord in January was “This is going to be a year to totally depend on God.”
 
Over a period of time the Israelites suffered and were oppressed by the rulers of Egypt. God then directs His divine attention toward a resolution to their condition. Exodus 2:23-25 gives the summary of their sufferings and cries to God. Israel’s provision hinges upon their obedience to God. God hears their cry, remembers His covenant with Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and takes notice of their suffering. The command was given to Israel to serve Him and He would bless them. Likewise, we too have to serve and depend on God. The promise is that He will bless us abundantly—our bread, our water and He will remove sickness away from us. He is the Author and Finisher of our faith.
 
May the blessings and favor of the Lord be upon you! May the rich timeless message of the Gospel fill your heart and home with joy now and throughout the year! God bless you and your family!
 

THE PURPOSE FOR OUR WEBSITE

GOD is calling YOU to HIMSELF. He wants you to go “deeper, wider, yet still” in His presence.
 
This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24). A warm welcome to our Internet visitors! This Website is designed to provide you with an opportunity to connect and fellowship with us, and most importantly, to learn more about our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
 
It is our prayer that everyone who visits this site will experience the warmth of God’s love. He is so faithful to us and His mercies are renewed every day. We encourage you to share His love with others. The word of God teaches us that when Jesus was asked which commandment is the greatest of all, He replied, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” Matthew 22: 36-40.
 
We trust you will be personally inspired, challenged, and changed through the powerful and effective working of the Holy Spirit in your life.
 
Thank you for visiting us on this glorious Lord’s Day. His love brought us together this day in favor and in unity. We love you and we appreciate you taking the time to visit with us.
