Who We Are

Shining the Light of Truth through the Darkness

In these troubled times people are worried, confused, and anxious. They are searching for answers, solutions and hope. As followers of Jesus, we have exactly what they are looking for – God’s living Word, the Bible!

The Bible is crucial for life. It is the number one weapon to discern truth from error, set the standard for right and wrong, and prepare people for things to come. The Bible is the authority for life, the light of truth, and the power of God for salvation.  

Jesus reminded His followers that in the world they would have trouble (John 16:33).  Life is hard, and it is easy to grow weary, so it is vital that His followers are intentional about taking time to retreat from the world and re-focus on Him, whether it is for 20 minutes, 2 hours, or overnight.  Our mission is to provide opportunities and resources for followers of Jesus Christ to be equipped, encouraged, and strengthened in their walk with Him.debweb

Helping our brothers and sisters in Christ stay eternal minded and kingdom focused is our priority and we are here to teach, proclaim, and uphold the life-saving truths of God’s Word.

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.”  Psalm 119:105
