Our mission is ministry, plain and simple, we want to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ and his Love for us that took him to a Cross to save the world from their sins. Prayer is important to us. Scripture tells us to “Pray Continually,” so we want to pray for you as well. We offer a Devotion Block from 8:05 to 8:35 each morning. Email us your Prayer Requests.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.” — John 3:16-17 KJV
