The preaching is biblcally based, and to the point, and easy for all ages to understand the message and its application to our daily lives.

What is the community like?
Church community is very friendly, welcoming and accepting of all ages, races and backgrounds. Afterall the church is a place for those who need healing not for those who have it "all together."
