Our church started in the Fall of 1980 as a small neighborhood Bible study. As more people attended we moved into a nearby clubhouse and in January of 1981, Sunday morning services began.

God has been so good to us as none of us had any experience in starting a church. We just trusted the Lord and taught His Word and He gave the increase. Over the years we have continued to see the faithfulness of God and He continues to provide for our needs and has brought in many wonderful people to serve. He made us a family and filled our little church with His love and Spirit. Since those early days the Lord has allowed us to plant several other churches around the area and eventually He opened the door for us to teach His Word on the radio. 

Our whole ministry can be summed up this way: to glorify God by faithfully serving and reaching out to others through His love and the teaching of His Word.  We are grateful that He uses the weak, the foolish, the nobodies of this world to show Himself strong through. To God be the glory for the great things He has done!
