The central objective of this ministry is to build a people who have been delivered from the bondage of sin and live victoriously on a daily basis. We believe these can be achieved through the uncompromised teaching of the Word of God. When the believer firmly roots himself or herself in the Word of God and understands the source of their success, they will give all praise to God

The people will be taught and given examples of holiness, character, and integrity. The ministry will have an emphasis on building God consciousness, so that the children of God can function as husbands, wives, and parents in a manner that glorifies God and impacts this generation. We will seek to reach the lost and hurting with the message of faith and to render the loving touch to help men and women overcome the challenges in life. The church is to provide enrichment through special emphasis ministry.

We are committed to:

  • Influencing today’s generation positively by modeling the way.
  • Giving account for every deed; whether in word or action.
  • Treating mankind with dignity and respect.
  • Preparing generation next – now.
  • Building cultural and community awareness.
  • Building leadership for maximized potential.
  • Providing an opportunity where the love of Christ can be made visible.
  • Excellence in every area of ministry.
