A CHURCH WHERE
In the Bible, the meaning of thanksgiving reflected adoration, sacrifice, praise or an offering. Thanksgiving was a grateful language to God as an act of worship. Rarely, if ever, was thanksgiving extended to any person or thing, except God. “These things I remember as I pour out my soul; how I used to go with the multitude, leading the procession to the house of God, with shouts of joy and thanksgiving among the festive throng” (Psalm 42:4). Long before the colonists celebrated their successes, Nehemiah assembled two great choirs to give thanks for God’s faithfulness in rebuilding the wall. Download This Month’s Newsletter

What We Believe
The Bible is the inspired Word of God
We believe the Bible to be the inspired Word of God, and our only infallible authority. We believe that the Lord Jesus Christ and the Bible should have the place of pre-eminence in the church, home and each person’s life. By doing this, there is a joyful, fruitful, and victorious Christian testimony.
