About Pastor Gary & Theresa

Our ministry vision is simple; Introduce the lost to the Savior, Jesus Christ. Help the saved
discover their calling. Equip the saints to fulfill that calling and send as they deploy to the
next duty station where they will introduce the lost to The Savior….and the cycle repeats. In
short, make disciples who make disciples.

We have a passion for the literacy of God’s Word in the Church. We believe that God’s
Word is perfect, infallible, and inspired. We believe The Bible is ONE love letter, with ONE
message, about ONE person, Jesus, inspired by ONE Holy Spirit from Geneses to Revelation.
The Bible is not just another good book, His Word is Life. We believe that offering verse-by-
verse, chapter-by-chapter in-depth studies of the Bible will ignite a passion for His Word
amongst believers, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.

We believe in an honest and true worship. Not hyped up with gimmicks, concerts, and “feel
good” theology. We trust God when life throws us a curve ball and praise Him with joy
when we hit it out of the park. We tackle the hard questions that life introduces, so our
members are not building foundations that crumble when life doesn’t go as planned.

We believe in providing a firm foundation for the children to build their faith on. We believe
Deuteronomy 6:7 is clear when it states “…teach [His Word] diligently to your children…”

We believe in the power of the Holy Spirit and we believe in the power of prayer. We
believe that God still heals, and we strongly believe that God is still in the miracle business.
But most importantly we believe that God gives people new starts. A clean slate. A new
beginning. We believe (no, we KNOW) God meets you where you are.
