Bringing The Hope Of Christ To The Center Of Human Hearts

Bringing The Hope Of Christ To The Center Of Human Hearts

We do not believe in religion. We believe in a relationship with Jesus Christ. The Bible is God’s Word to you and to me. It is God’s love letter to us, helping us live the best life possible and learning how much God loves us and forgives us. It is the foundation of what we teach and believe.

 Who We Are

We are a Church

People of all ages coming together to learn why we can hope and how we can help others have the same hope.

We are a Mission

Using our hearts and hands to help others who are hurting and have given up on hope.

We are a Ministry

Spreading the message of hope through new media.
