You will hear a relevant, straightforward message based on the Bible. Messages are brought to help you develop a growing, real relationship with Jesus Christ and help you in your walk with Him. Pastor Jim usually reads from the NLT Bible translation because he feels it's an easy-to-understand language that will work for all who attend - the youngest to the oldest, the unsaved, the new believer, and the one who has walked with God for many years.
We celebrate Communion together on designated Sunday mornings to remember Jesus' sacrifice for us. We encourage everyone who has made a decision to follow Jesus Christ to participate in the Lord's Supper with us. The juice and bread we share represent His body and blood, which He laid down for the forgiveness of our sins so we can have eternal life with God.
