  • HE WHO DOES NOT LOVE DOES NOT KNOW GOD
    If someone were to ask me to describe the entire Bible in one phrase – one phrase that captures the very essence of the bible in its entirety, I’d say: “It is the story of God’s love.” God created humanity out of love. He provides … Read more
  • BEING TOGETHER
    I have five siblings (4 sisters and 1 little brother), and we all grew up in a small confined space. I love my sisters and little brother deeply, but there were times when we did not quite love each other that well – those of … Read more
  • DO NOT TAKE YOUR PRAISE LIGHTLY
                As disciples of Christ we tend to place a greater value on reading Scripture and prayer than we do praise. Praising God is as powerful and as important in the life of a believer. The Bible says in Romans 15: 4 that God’s Word … Read more

  • ABSENT IN THE BODY, PRESENT IN THE SPIRIT: COLOSSIANS 2: 1 – 5
              Have you ever been in a “Long distance relationship?” Maybe some of you would say, I don’t believe “Long distance relationships” can work, and that’s fair. It is possible, those who do not believe such relationships are viable stem from past painful experiences. It … Read more

  • The Human Touch

    Sermon from Donny Pierre on Resurrection Sunday, April 12, 2020 Sermon Notes / PowerPoint for Sunday's Sermon
  • Video: Resurrection of Hope

  • The Promises of God: Psalm 91
    According to the dictionary, a promise is “a declaration or assurance that one will do a particular thing or that a particular thing will happen.” We all have made several promises to different people in our lives, and truth be told we haven’t always been … Read more
  • 7 PROMISES OF GOD TO BELIEVE IN (PSALM 91)
    I am so amazed at how God has been keeping us in fellowship with one another, regardless of the fact that we cannot see each other face to face. I am so thankful for our leadership during this time and all the work they have … Read more
