The Pastor, Bro. Lawrence Bradford, and wife Sis.

We are involved in several ministries including our "Food Bank", (which ministers to those in our community whom are in need of food and necessaties that God sends our way).  We praise the Lord for allowing us to be able to participate in this outreach program.

Our director of the "Music Ministry", Sis. Tonia, is a devoted, spirit-filled young woman of whom is used by God to create a atmosphere of praise and worship.  The music glorifies our Lord through a versatile selection ranging from hymnals to contemporary music.

We also have ministries for our youth including "Children's Church", which is directed by Bro. JR and Sis. Tiffani.  These are two young adults on fire for the Lord!  They are excited about their ministry of reaching children for the Savior! 

The "Youth Group" is involved in many activities that minister to the lost and hurting youth in our community.  Our youth are involved in many different activites including sports, christian concerts, and special retreats.  The youth group has grown tremendously over the last two years and we invite your youth to join us and be involved.

Our church is a group of energetic young people, ages  0 to 100!  Our congregation is dedicated to the ministry of reaching those that are lost, ones that may be hurting, or are broken hearted.  We believe in teaching and preaching the entire bible from Genesis to Revelation as directed by God's Holy Spirit.
Declaration of Faith:

The Church of God believes the whole Bible to be completely and equally inspired and that it is the written Word of God.  The Church of God has adopted the following Declaration of Faith as its standard and official expression of its doctrine.

We Believe:

In the verbal inspiration of the Bible.

In one God eternally existing in three persons; namely, the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

That Jesus Christ is the only begotten Son of the Father, conceived of the Holy Ghost, and born of the Virgin Mary. That Jesus was crucified, buried, and raised from the dead. That He ascended to heaven and is today at the right hand of the Father as the Intercessor.

That all have sinned and come short of the glory of God and that repentance is commanded of God for all and necessary for forgiveness of sins.

That justification, regeneration, and the new birth are wrought by faith in the blood of Jesus Christ.

In sanctification subsequent to the new birth, through faith in the blood of Christ; through the Word, and by the Holy Ghost.

Holiness to be God's standard of living for His people.

In the baptism with the Holy Ghost subsequent to a clean heart.

In speaking with other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance and that it is the initial evidence of the baptism of the Holy Ghost.

In water baptism by immersion, and all who repent should be baptized in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Divine healing is provided for all in the atonement.

In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints' feet.

In the premillennial second coming of Jesus. First, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to Him in the air. Second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.

In the bodily resurrection; eternal life for the righteous, and eternal punishment for the wicked.
