Messages: Check out a minute of a message
Our mission is helping people follow Jesus together.
We want to help people move forward, but we do this with an attitude of humility knowing God is at work in greater ways than we can fathom.
We are on a journey of following Jesus for the rest of our lives and He asks us to become more like Him in the context of the church community--together.

[9:7] “Are you not like the Cushites to me,
O people of Israel?” declares the LORD.
“Did I not bring up Israel from the land of Egypt,
and the Philistines from Caphtor and the Syrians from Kir?
 Behold, the eyes of the Lord GOD are upon the sinful kingdom,
and I will destroy it from the surface of the ground,
except that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,”
declares the LORD.
 “For behold, I will command,
and shake the house of Israel among all the nations
as one shakes with a sieve,
but no pebble shall fall to the earth.
 All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword,
who say, ‘Disaster shall not overtake or meet us.’
 “In that day I will raise up
the booth of David that is fallen
and repair its breaches,
and raise up its ruins
and rebuild it as in the days of old,
 that they may possess the remnant of Edom
and all the nations who are called by my name,”
declares the LORD who does this.
 “Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD,
“when the plowman shall overtake the reaper
and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed;
the mountains shall drip sweet wine,
and all the hills shall flow with it.
 I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel,
and they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them;
they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine,
and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.
 I will plant them on their land,
and they shall never again be uprooted
out of the land that I have given them,”
says the LORD your God.
