Amos 9:11-15 (CSB)
11 In that day I will restore the fallen shelter of David: I will repair its gaps, restore its ruins, and rebuild it as in the days o old,
12 so that they may possess the remnant of Edom and all the nations that bear my name – this is the declaration of the LORD; he will do this.
13 Look, the days are coming – this is the LORD’s declaration – when the plowman will overtake the reaper and the one who treads grapes, the sower of seed. The mountains will drip with sweet wine, and all the hills will flow with it.
14 I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel. The will rebuild and occupy ruined cities, plant vineyards and drink their wine, make gardens and eat their produce.
15 I will plant them on their land, and they will never again be uprooted from the land I have given them. The LORD your God has spoken.
We are ordinary people.
Being a Christian isn’t complicated or political; it’s simply falling in love with Jesus Christ. We’re ordinary people with ordinary lives and ordinary problems, coming together for an extraordinary experience in the presence of the Lord. No magic answers. No secret formulas. Just simple faith and trust in Jesus Christ.

Outreach ,Missions & FOOD PANTRY.
Outreach is all about taking the gospel of Jesus Christ to all nations. When Jesus left the earth, He gave clear instructions that we were to reach out to all nations and make disciples in His name. Our work extends beyond our walls and reaches into all nations of the world. In these outreach efforts, we grow the Kingdom and find new brothers and sisters in Christ who are just like us. We also have a heavy presence within our community, where we help those who are in need.
