Get to Know Us!

Shining the Light Inward

The Cross

Jesus is our Master, Teacher, and Example. We follow in His footsteps by faith. Like the moon reflects the light of the sun, we try to reflect the light of the Son of God.

As one of our primary purposes, we encourage the children of God who meet with us to grow up. That’s right – we are all growing, maturing, coming to a better and greater knowledge of our God. “Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in all aspects into Him who is the head, even Christ” (Ephesians 4:15). We want each member to enjoy a healthy spiritual life, full of the fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). We want each member to stop following destructive paths, which lead to pain and death, and turn to follow life-giving, healing paths in Christ Jesus our Savior.

Shining the Light Outward

God's LightAs another primary purpose, we build up the Lord’s people for the purpose of ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12). God has giving us a mission to be “the pillar and support of the truth” – His truth (1 Timothy 3:15). So we look for opportunities to shine the light of Christ on our neighbors, friends, and communities. We reach out through home bible discussion groups, a prison ministry, various public teaching events, and home bible correspondence courses to mention a few.

Come Walk in the Light with Us

Walk in the Light“God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we have say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.” (1 John 1:5-7)

God has promised; we believe Him. We have fellowship with Him as long as we walk with Him in the Light. Do you want to walk with us in the Light? Do you want to have daily encouragement to grow as a child of God? Do you want a healthy spiritual life with all the heavenly blessings that go with it (Ephesians 1:3)?

We’ll welcome your visit with a smile :-)
