MEET OUR STAFF


  • JESUS CHRIST

    HEAD PASTOR

    Available by prayer 24/7, 365 days a year.


    Jesus was born in Bethlehem and grew up in Nazareth.  He is the way, the truth, and the life.  Jesus is the son of God, was conceived by the Holy Spirit, and was born of the Virgin Mary.  He was crucified for our sins and defeated death by resurrection.  He is hope to the hopeless, a friend to the lonely, and a redeeming healer to the broken.  Jesus really wants to meet you, love you, and become a part of your life.  He will never give up on you. To learn more about Jesus, check out The Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John in the Bible or shoot an email to anyone on this page.
