I received Christ as my Lord and Savior at a young age in Vacation Bible School. As an adult I became
involved in church and rededicated my life completely to the Lord. In the spring of 1992 at our Yearly
Church Family Conference I felt the call of God on my life. I surrendered to that call and began to
volunteer and assist in our church youth ministry.
In June of 1992 my wife and I were called by God to serve as volunteer Youth Ministers there at our home
church. After serving as volunteer Youth Ministers for a little over 6 months we were called to serve on
staff as Youth Ministers at a different local area church. We then became full time Youth Ministers and
after seven years of serving in this capacity, God began to call us back to our home community to serve as
Pastors of our former church. In January 2000, we were set as Senior Pastors of our home church.
Upon accepting the call back to our home church we served for 2 years at the churches then location, a 100
year old school building. The church had been established for over 25 years and had never owned its own
facility. The old building was on loan from the community. After 2 years someone donated the funds to us
for the purchase of a 6.5 acre plot closer to town where we soon began the process of building the church a
worship facility. The building was completed and moved into within four months.
Seven years later God began to instruct us to plant a new work within this ministry. So we replanted the
church with a new name and moved forward with a whole new, fresh and relevant vision for the
community. The vision then began to unfold and become clearer what God had for this ministry, in this
community. To be a place that would outreach to children, youth and adults and build strong families. We
began to develop a strong children’s ministry and youth ministry. Teaching them the word of God and that
they can do and have a great purpose in Him, even at their young ages. We also did women’s and men’s
bible studies in which we ministered topics relevant to men and women. In holding a yearly Marriage
Conference we imparted values and principles relevant to the marriage relationship.
Over the years God has spoke to us about families, marriages, children, youth and young adults. We have
seen the importance of these areas and have a real burden and a desire to see families grow strong in there
faith and know who they are in Christ. We have been committed and dedicated to imparting values that will
stand the test of time. In spite of how the image of the family has been distorted by the media, a strong
kingdom family can change the world. Religion to long has made people believe they had to be perfect to
serve God, but with a great mandate and strong passion we as Pastor’s, wish to impart to all people that
God uses all people and has a purpose for them.
“Building God’s Kingdom One Family at a Time”
We are committed and dedicated to imparting values that will stand the test of time. In spite of how the
image of the church and family has been distorted by the media, a strong Kingdom family can change the
world. With topics related to empowering believers our desire is to help individuals find their purpose and
position in God’s Kingdom. We desire and seek to more accurately represent Christ in the Earth. Through
proper Apostolic Relationship, Godly lifestyles, covenant relationships, and accurate thinking and
We believe the Bible is verbally inspired by the Holy Spirit, the infallible revelation of God to man. II Tim.3:16-17, II
Pet.1:20-21. We believe there is only one true, eternal God revealed in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the believer is enabled to live a holy life.
Sanctification is the process of being separated from sin and dedicated to God, which begins at salvation and
continues throughout the lifetime of the believer.

We believe in the baptism of the Holy Spirit which is promised to all believers subsequent to salvation as the entrance
into a Spirit-filled life including: a prayer language (speaking in tongues), gifts of the Holy Spirit, and power to be a
witness and anointed servant of God.

We believe in the personal, imminent return of Jesus Christ.
Acts 1:11, I Thess. 4:16-18, Titus 2:13
We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; the saved to everlasting life and the unsaved
to everlasting damnation.
Acts 24:15, I Cor.15:20-23, Rev.20:4-6, 12-15
We believe in the responsibility of every believer to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
