What we are about...
While many congregations share the same general mission, each church has a unique purpose. Here's ours: Go into All the World and Preach the Gospel, teaching the principles of Torah (Gods teaching and instruction) and applying the truths revealed to a walk of obedience and faith. Starting with our own community, we reach out to our state, our nation, and the world as opportunities arise. "Go ye therefore and teach all nations..." (Matt 28:19) We acknowledge every saint is a minister, every minister a servant.
We believe every Christian is set in a local body for the purpose of serving Christ, and is called and equipped to minister through the power of the Holy Spirit. “We will then no longer be infants tossed about by the waves and blown along by every wind of teaching, at the mercy of people clever in devising ways to deceive. Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will, in every respect, grow up into Him who is the head, the Messiah. Under His control, the whole body is being fitted and held together, by the support of every joint, with each part working to fulfill its function; this is how the body grows and builds itself up in love."”(Eph 4:14-16) CJB
...A House of Prayer
We covenant to pray for each other and for the world. "Praying always...with all prayer and supplication…for all the saints." Eph. 6:18
We continually and purposefully pray for the peace of Jerusalem (Psalm 122:6, Isa 62:1)
Strong, effectual prayer is vital to the health and well being of every believer and congregation. “If my people, called by My name, would 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.” IIChr 7:14
...A Worship Center
We believe it is right and just to present our bodies as a living offering unto God in song as well as dance. We meet together to focus our attention on God, delighting in praising and worshipping Him.
"Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together." (Heb. 10:25)
“Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.” (Ps 29:2)
“Hear O Israel, the LORD thy God the LORD is one. And thou shall love the LORD thy God with all of your heart, with all of your soul, and with all of your resources.” (Deut. 6:4-5)

...A Teaching Center
It is our vision to help believers recognize and develop their ministry in the body of Christ, to reach maturity in word and deed, and to provide opportunity for growth in every aspect of their calling. “And He gave some Apostles, and some prophets, and some, evangelists, and some, pastors and teachers; for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” (Eph 4:11-12)
In order to achieve this, we believe it is critical we present ourselves to the complete study and instruction of Gods Torah (His teaching and instruction). We believe the “Old Testament” is just as valid and relevant today as it was the day it was given. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” (II Tim 3:16)
...An Outreach Center
We reach out in love through a Life share ministry, teaching in surrounding communities, participating in a regional pastors' fellowship, and through missions.
"...love one another, as I have loved you...by this shall all men know that ye are my disciples." (Joh 13:34-35)
