I came to know Christ when I was in 3rd grade at a summer camp and knew I wanted to serve this amazing God that the counselors so sweetly loved.  My foundation was secure and my identity in Him was sure, but I chose to step into some serious sin as a teen and early college student.  At the age of 19 I broke free from the sins that were entangling me and felt released from bondage.  It was as if God had unlocked the chains of sin when I was 9 and then I finally shook off the unlocked shackles at 19.  Though the journey since then has been far from easy or sin-free (my husband has called our particular flavor of crazy Rocky Road), I’m so glad for His guidance and preparation.

Statement of Faith

I believe that Jesus is the Son of Gad, conceived by the Holy Spirit.  I believe in His atoning work on the cross, resurrection, and perpetual intercession.  I believe that the Word of God is inspired and without error, useful for teaching and instruction. I believe that there is one God existing in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit).  I believe that anyone who repents of their sins and trusts in Jesus Christ as their Savior is freed from condemnation and given eternal life.
