Bringing Heaven Down...

Jesus taught us to pray “your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven”

Jesus expects us to bring Heaven to Earth and allow His fallen creation to experience what He has for them. When we do, broken and sinful people are restored, the spiritual temperature in our communities gets raised, God is glorified, and His Kingdom expands!

Join us as we position ourselves through a commitment to holy living to experience His Kingdom come!
