I am so pleased that you decided to take a moment to visit our Web page. In this day of increasing technology, it has become possible to find out the mission and philosophy of a church right on the internet. It is our desire to take advantage of this technology and share with you the various aspects of our ministry. 

In a society where we see increased hunger for God and spirituality, it is imperative that the local church have answers to the multi-faceted issues that we face in this day. While we as a society have enjoyed an advance of knowledge, financial prosperity and a technological explosion, we see more and more that these achievements are hollow and empty without a personal relationship with God. All these things are transitory and temporal, yet a relationship with God is eternal and gives us peace and hope in the midst of turbulent and unsure times. 

Our congregation consists of a growing and diverse group of people from different backgrounds, professions, and nationalities. This group continues to expand as we seek to understand the pressures that the people of the Hampton Roads area experience on an ongoing basis and then meet those needs through prayer, personal and corporate ministry. One thing we continue to see, is the need and blessing of a vibrant and personal relationship with God. Regardless of your social stature, your background or your ethnicity, God loves you and He has a unique plan and purpose for you!!! 

We pray that your time here will provide you with the information you need to either strengthen or renew your walk with God or begin a new life in Him. If you are going to be in Hampton or already live here, we would love for you to come visit with us. 

Please feel free to use this site and if you have any questions regarding any aspect of our ministry, or if you feel you need prayer or you have questions, please feel free to contact us.
