Salvations

Baptisms

I have personally witnessed God’s actions many times through my professional and personal life. However, I just witnessed the most powerful God moment so far. Pastor Tim Howey delivered an absolutely awesome message. Then at the end of the service, he called for spontaneous baptisms. I lost track of how many total but it was over 40 to 50 full immersion for just our first service alone! Powerful. — Greg

The Financial Peace group came at a perfect time. Greg and Thomas were great leaders and mentors as they introduced Dave Ramsey’s philosophy on money to the class. It was easily the biggest relief to finally have my future spouse see finances the same way I did. — Tyler & Kristen

We exist to help everyone become an outward-focused follower of Jesus. As the church, we strive to live out the two greatest commandments given to us: to love God and to love people. We believe that in Jesus, there is truth, freedom, joy, and immeasurable GRACE. Through Him, we will reach this city.
