Here at the Promise we understand that the key to changing our world is a strong church, and the key to building a strong church is having strong families. The key to a strong family is one that is rooted and built on the Gospel. Our mission is focused toward strengthening families starting with Sunday services. Around here you will often hear the phrase "family style" which means we participate in worship and service together as one big family, old and young alike, where wisdom and child like faith live in close community. We strongly believe that children will learn and grow more from watching their parents than they would in any other setting. We provide each child with their very own Promise Land Kids program with activities and games to help them stay engaged with the message. Each program has questions they get to take home and talk with their family’s about what they learned.
We are not a church interested in making "good Christians" but rather that we would become "good worshippers of God". That our worship of God would then influence who we are making us good Christians. Being lights in this dark world.
For it is by;
Through the revelation of
that we are saved for the
Sole Glory of God.
We would love for you to come worship with us Sunday morning at 10am.

Have a blessed day.

My mouth shall speak of wisdom; and the meditation of my heart shall be of understanding. Psalm 49:3
suggested further reading: Proverbs 8:1–12
The prophet rightly applies commendatory terms to the doctrine which he is about to communicate. He does this by speaking as one who would apply his own mind to instruction rather than to only assume the office of exhortation. He puts himself forward as a humble scholar, who, in acting the part of teacher, also has a concern for his own improvement.
All ministers of God should have a similar spirit, disposing them to regard God as their own teacher as well as of the common people. They must first embrace that divine word which they then preach to others.
The psalmist had another goal in mind. He prefers to give deference and weight to the doctrine he teaches by announcing that he has no intention to offer fancies of his own but to advance only what he has learned in the school of God. This is the true method of instruction to be followed in the church.
The man who holds the office of teacher must apply himself to receiving truth before attempting to communicate it. In this manner he becomes the means of conveying to the hands of others what God has committed to his own. Wisdom is not the growth of human genius. It must be sought from above. It is impossible for anyone to speak with the propriety and knowledge necessary for the edification of the church who has not, in the first place, been taught at the feet of the Lord.
It is easy for us to think we are capable of dispensing wisdom and understanding, but we cannot do so without first receiving it from God himself. Let us remember that we have nothing to give that we have not first received—and that we are to use what we have received for the edification of all around us.
