The early New Testament Churches were powerful Churches for many good reasons. They were going, growing, sending and always on the move. We have purposed in our hearts and have asked God to help us be like His early Churches. We pray He will give us strength to keep going when many are falling by the wayside and will not go. We also pray he will give the increase and we will grow for His honor and glory. So we continue to pray and continue to go by faith believing that God will give the increase in His time. In order to facilitate future growth we stepped out by faith this last year and purchased a used Modular to free up more room in our small sanctuary and to facilitate continued growth in our youth program. We want to be good stewards with what God has blessed us with and this temporary building is the final step to maximize the use of our current location. As you can see from the (above and below) pics, the new building is already a blessing to the Church plant. In addition to providing a large room for Jr. Church and Youth activities, the new modular also serves as a fellowship hall. We dedicated the modular at our annual Fall Festival Outreach program.

PRISON MINISTRY 2019
God is working in the lives of many men from many different countries behind the barbed wire fences at Cross City Correctional Institution. Not only are some getting saved but some are being trained to preach the gospel to their own Nation upon their release. For example, we have seen men from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Ecuador and Columbia released after years of teaching and training to become ambassadors for Christ in their home land.
The Prison Ministry is not the only area of our ministry which is bearing much fruit. The end of 2019 brought in a renewed spirit for soul winning through Saturday visitation. You will find Terry and I out in the highways and hedges each and every Saturday trying to reach the lost and encourage the saved to be faithful to the Lord. During the last month of 2019, our Saturday visitation team grew to seven. Its not easy work, but it is a blessed work that is driven by our love and obedience to Christ and a burden for the lost.
Hand of God upon us!
