As a congregation, our goals are to save souls and keeps souls saved. This ministry aims specifically at the latter. As members are baptized into Christ, our Brother’s Keepers ensure the successful matriculation into the church congregational culture and insertion into ministry work and lay the foundation for maturation as a Christian for new born babes in Christ.
Our children’s ministry is designed to meet the needs of our children from infant to age 8. We recognize that our younger children have a different set of needs than our older kids and we aim to meet those by setting a true foundation of God, his love for them and laying the framework upon which we will build upon their spiritual knowledge in years to come. Specifically our aim with all of our children is to create a deep love for the Lord at an early age and reiterate how God wants our children to live and grow in his love.
By our community engagement initiative, we extend the ministry of the church beyond the walls of the church building and into our immediate and surrounding communities in which we live, work and operate on a daily basis. Our purpose is to meet needs while showing the Spirit of God that lives in us. This manifests itself in a variety of community projects such as: health and wellnes initiatives, distributions of food, clothing or school supplies. We are partners with charities and foundations to meet the needs of our community. Our hope is that as we not only meet these needs but exceed the needs as we will lift the name of Jesus Christ.
Our education ministry is the foundation of our ministry structure. Through this, we aim at providing a spiritual foundation for each member of the congregation from infant to seasoned adult through a curriculum designed to bring them to the perfect knowledge of Christ and His sacrifice for our sins. We have devised a curriculum that teaches the same principles throughout the congregation on age appropriate levels so that families can study together at home and grow together. Our children are tested and evaluated and receive quarterly reports on their progress. Our foundations class C.L.A.S.S. (Church, Lifestyle, Assembly, Service, Salvation) is also a great tool for new converts and seasoned members to continue to digest the basics of the doctrine.
“Go ye out into the world…” as a church body, we are serious about bringing lost souls to Jesus Christ and improving their knowledge of Him that they may lay hold to the Hope of salvation. Here, we encourage each member to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. We hold private bible studies upon request with the aim of baptizing new members into the body of Christ any day of the week and as often as they are called by God.
Health & Wellness
Our health and wellness ministry aims to educate, instruct and assist our members and the community in a holistic approach to health. Our programing is geared for the physical, spiritual and psychological soundness of man. We also lend a hand in the community teaching and helping others to be good stewards of their bodies and assist those who need additional help.
Our hospitality ministry aims to provide the most loving and welcoming experience possible. While a Hope experience is not limited to entering our facilities we insist that our worship, learning and fellowship environments are second to none. The goal is to make everyone feel special and touch them with the finger of hospitality. Members working in this ministry excel at showing the love of Jesus Christ in a personal way.
‘Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it…” Psalm 127:1 keeping our marriages strong in the congregation is one of our principle aims. Our marriage enrichment ministry is designed to do just that. Bi-weekly marriage classes are taught by our senior minister along with regular fellowships among couples that encourage our marriages to be strong and Godly. In addition, they help reinforce Godly principles of marriage. We recognize that the marriage is the foundational unit of the church body, thus our ministry efforts in this area are of great importance.
Our media ministry helps us take the gospel to the outside world and our outreach in this area is intended to reach as many people as possible with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We are online, assisted by both our website and social media platforms along with a radio program, television program and CD and DVD duplication of our teaching and preaching. All with the aim to expose as many people to the gospel as possible.
Our men’s ministry is targeted at keeping strong, spiritually minded men rooted and grounded in the faith. As our men go, so goes the body of Christ. Therefore our men’s ministry is an aggressive push to meet the needs of the brothers of the congregation, keep their fellowship tight and authentic and also a means to devote ourselves to the word of God on at least a monthly basis together as a group. In so doing, we hope to develop our brothers to be apt to teach, preach, serve and do the Lord’s work, lacking no good thing in the body of Christ.
The seasoned members of the Lord’s church have so much to offer to the greater church body through wisdom and knowledge but they are still yearning for growth and the fellowship among the saints. In this effort, we target our seasoned members specifically to ensure they are never overlooked or feel left out of any specific area in the church body. Through outings catered toward helping them to enjoy the calmer seasons of their lives while providing service opportunities for continued growth and regular devotions, we aim to keep our seniors healthy, growing and gracefully continuing to work in the kingdom of God.
Jesus said “I was sick and ye visited me,” in Matthew 25:36 and thus he set the example for this ministry. Our goal through visitation is to regularly check in on and encourage our members who are unable to make it out to corporate worship service. In so doing, we hope to show them that we love them and keep the connection of fellowship between them and the greater church body. In turn we know that those who are visiting are also gaining something from the contact with members who are sharing with them how God has been, despite their circumstance.
Women of Hope
Our Women of Hope ministry is designed to target the needs of the sisters of the congregation. Our sisters, we recognize, have a specific set of spiritual needs that deserve special attention. The activities of this ministry are designed to meet those needs along with a strong emphasis on serving our greater community and looking outward as well as inward. As God transforms our women, they in turn will transform the world around them.
Our worship ministry is designed with specific attention to making sure our worship service meets the highest standards of reverence to almighty God. We seek to position prepared vessels who under the guidance of the Holy Spirit will offer the of best of service and praise to God.
We realized that our young adults, ages 18-30, have a different set of spiritual needs from the majority of the congregation. Our aim in this ministry is to meet those needs both spiritual and especially social with the purpose of keeping young adults grounded in the Lord, in the midst of all the distractions trying to lead them away from the Lord. Through monthly devotions, fellowships and a Sunday morning bible class, our Young Adult Ministry serves to meet specific needs for a generation Satan is taking aim at dead on. Through Christ and with faithfulness, we can ensure our YAM members stay strong.
Our Youth ministry is aimed at giving our youth a spiritual foundation upon which they can create a successful spiritual life going forward. We hope to train, mentor and teach them in the ways of Christ and make them comfortable taking larger roles as adults in the worship service and serving in the congregation at large. As young people, we know they have specific needs also. We meet those through our classroom instruction in bible study and also through regular fellowships and outings aimed at giving our youth a firm foundation as well as a bridge into adulthood.
