WHAT TIME IS IT?
 
What is Israel’s role in the End Times?  Every time there is a conflict in or around Israel, many see it as a sign of the quickly approaching end times. The problem with this is that we may eventually tire of the conflict in Israel, so much so that we will not recognize when true, prophetically significant events occur.  However, the Bible does say there will be terrible conflict in Israel during the end times. That is why the time period is known as the Tribulation, the Great Tribulation, and the “time of Jacob’s trouble” (Jeremiah 30:7).   Join us as we learn what the Bible says about Israel in the end times.

Accept Christ

Choosing to be a Jesus follower is a big decisions. But one of the most full-filing and amazing choices you could ever make. Did you decide to become a Jesus follower at one of our Sunday Services? We would love to know so that we can walk beside you in your new journey with Christ. Contact one of our pastors today and we would love to partner with you in your faith, and continue to provide resources and equip you.
 

Get Baptized

Baptism is an important step of obedience that shows others we have personally trusted Jesus for our salvation. Jesus was baptized when He was on the earth, and we do this to follow His example. When Christians are baptized, they are submerged under water to identify with the death and burial of Jesus and raised out of the water to identify with His resurrection. We believe that water baptism is a public declaration of three important things: you are a follower of Jesus Christ, you are beginning a changed life in Christ, and you are part of a new family.
 

Get Connected

The church goes far beyond the 4 walls on a Sunday morning. To continue the growth of your faith it is so important that you stay connected and interact with others who share the same faith you do. We encourage you to join a Life Group today. Get connected with a group that you feel you might be able to connect with others in. There are several Life Groups going on throughout the week.
 
Membership Classes are offered quarterly each year as needed as well as Baptism Services as requested.
