Our mission is to Witness the Word, Worship
the Lord and Walk in Love.

Our Vision

God has given Rev. Shyne a vision...
To create a place where families experience spiritual, emotional, and physical wholeness through a relationship with God and God’s community of people.
To equip God’s people in excellence to experience abundant life.
To provide a stable environment for families in which they are supported during life’s challenges.

Our Foundations

We believe in God the Father, infinite in wisdom, power, and love, whose mercy is over all his works, and whose will is ever directed to his children’s good.
We believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of man, the gift of the Father’s unfailing grace, the ground of our hope, and the promise of our deliverance from sin and death.
Our FoundationFoundation
We believe in the Holy Spirit as the divine presence in our lives, whereby we are kept in perpetual remembrance of the truth of Christ and find strength and help in time of need.
We believe that this faith should manifest itself in the service of love as set forth in the example of our blessed Lord, to the end that the kingdom of God may come upon the earth.
