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.
Living in the House of God
But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth. 1 Timothy 3:15
suggested further reading: Ephesians 4:1–16
Let those who are appointed as ministers of the Word of God know that they not only deal with people but are accountable to him who has called them to this high office. Let them not be puffed up with the honor and dignity of their position but know that they shall be so much less able to excuse themselves if they fail to walk uprightly. If they fail to serve him as they ought, they will commit horrible sacrilege and have a fearful vengeance of God prepared for them.
First, we are taught to do our duty. Because God has honored us in our unworthiness, we ought to labor to fill the office to which we are called. The church is called the house of the living God. That ought to awaken us to walk rightly. Why, then, do we sleep in our sins? Why do we run into wickedness? Do we think that God does not see us? Do we think we are far out of his sight and from the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ?
Let us remember that the Word of God is preached to us, that God dwells among us, and that he is present with us. As our Lord Jesus Christ says, “Where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them” (Matt. 18:20). We also are told, “In him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily” (Col. 2:9).
So then, however often the devil attempts to rock us to sleep, to tie us to the vanities of this world, or to tempt us with wicked lusts, we ought to remember and set before our eyes that God dwells in the midst of us and that we are his house.
Those who labor in gospel ministry are held by God to the highest standards, for they are ambassadors of God. They should tremble at the responsibility they hold and look to Christ for the strength to be faithful in their work and life. If you are a minister, you should think long and hard about these things. If you are not, you should pray long and hard for those who are called to minister to you.
