Latest Sermon

Unburden Your Heart

Sunday, May 7, 2023

This past Sunday, Pr. Stephen preached a message on letting go of anxiety and stress titled "Unburden Your Heart".

Sermon Detail


The Trinity

One God, who exists in three Persons — the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He is loving, holy and just.

The Bible

The Bible is God’s Word. It is inspired and accurate. It is our perfect guide in all matters of life.

Jesus Christ

Jesus Christ is both God and Man. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary. He led a sinless life, took all our sins upon Himself, died and rose again. Today, He is seated at the right hand of the Father as our High Priest and Mediator.


Salvation is the gift of God to man. This gift is effected by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and it results in works pleasing to God.


Water baptism is a symbol of the cleansing power of God and a testimony of our faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit is our Comforter. He guides us in all areas of our lives. He also blesses us with spiritual gifts and empowers us to yield the fruit of the Spirit.


The Holy Communion is a celebration of Jesus’ death and our remembrance of Him.

Victorious Living

God wants to transform, heal and provide for us, so that we can live blessed and victorious lives that will impact and help others.

The Great Commission

That we are called to preach the gospel to all nations.

Christ's Return

Our Lord Jesus Christ is coming back again just as He promised.

Midweek Service

We offer a midweek service every Wednesday at 7pm. This hour long service is an awesome opportunity for anyone in the middle of the week to come and hear an uplifting word.
