We’re a church…just different.

 
We desire to be a church that is whole-heartedly in love with Jesus, is doing everything it can to invite HIS presence in each service, and is striving to walk in fullness of love to our community, and to each other. Our mission is to lead people to an experience with the Presence & Love of Jesus through Transforming Worship, Caring relationships, & Personal Ministry.  
 
In 2004, God moved on the leadership of the church to make a radical change from being a “program” driven church to a “presence” based church. To read more about this process, Pastor Lonnie Parton has authored the book, “Desperate People in Desperate Times”, describing how this dramatic change transpired and what it has meant for us.  Since that time, we have become a people who are desperately seeking the manifest presence of Jesus to transform personal lives, homes, cities and nations.  We are committed to making 2 Chronicles 7:14 a lifestyle, “If my people who are called by My name will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, I will forgive their sins and I will heal their land.”
 
There is something on the inside, a fire that burns deep within us, that yearns to be transparent, honest, and genuine, before God, our community, and before one another. We are not perfect, but we care, deeply. 

What can you expect?

Because we seek after the leading of the Holy Spirit for the direction of our gatherings, it would be hard to say that each service is alike.  However, here’s a glimpse of what you could expect when you visit us for the first time:
  • Authentic, vibrant worship of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through music and the arts
  • An opportunity to experience and encounter Jesus and to establish a relationship with Him
  • Extended times of prayer
  • An atmosphere where the presence of God can inhabit
  • Biblical preaching of the truth and love of our God and Father
  • Friendly, loving people from a variety of nations
  • An opportunity for personal, prophetic ministry
  • Participation in communion
 
WE STRIVE TO:
 

Lead the quest for the manifest presence of Jesus in our personal lives and in our region

Isaiah 64:1 Oh, that you would rend the heavens! That You would come down! (NKJ)

John 14:21 “And He who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and manifest myself to him.” (NKJ)

Encourage Intimacy with Jesus as a life ambition

John 13:23 Now there was leaning on Jesus’ bosom one of His disciples, whom Jesus loved. (NKJ)

 2 Corinthians 11:3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (NKJ)

Build trust and friendship among each other (the body of Christ) and our community

Philippians 1:9 and this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more (NKJ)

Ephesians 4:1-3 I, Therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you to walk worthy of the calling with which you were called, with all lowliness and gentleness, with longsuffering, bearing with one another in love, endeavoring to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. (NKJ)

Purse personal humility and brokenness

Psalm 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and contrite heart-these, O God, You will not despise. (NKJ)

James 4:10 Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up. (NKJ)

Foster unified and persistant prayer among all God’s people

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people who are called by my name will humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land. (NKJ)

Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication (NKJ)

Intensly love and reach the lost and broken

Matthew 9:36 But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. (NKJ)

So what can we do to serve?

It is our desire to love and serve you in every way. 
 
We invite you to join with us in our worship services. Each service is intentionally designed with a focus on Jesus in worship, prayer, the ministry of the Word and encounter with Him!
