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.
Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck. 1 Timothy 1:19
suggested further reading: Jude
This verse teaches us two lessons. First, teachers and ministers of the gospel, and through them the churches, are taught the horror with which they are to regard a hypocritical and deceitful profession of true doctrine and which is severely punished.
Second, this passage removes the reason why so many people are greatly distressed when they perceive that some who formerly professed their attachment to Christ and to the gospel not only fall back into their former superstitions but (which is far worse) are also bewildered and captivated by monstrous errors. By such examples, God openly supports the majesty of the gospel and openly shows that he cannot endure the profaning of it.
Experience has taught us in every age that all the errors that have existed in the Christian church from the beginning proceeded from the source, which, in some persons was ambition, and in others, covetousness, and which extinguished the true fear of God. A bad conscience is therefore the mother of all heresies. We see that a vast number of people who have not sincerely and honestly embraced the faith are hurried along like brute beasts so that their hypocrisy is eventually exposed.
In addition, contempt of God is universally prevalent. The licentious and disgraceful lives of almost all ranks show that there is either none at all or the smallest possible portion of integrity in the world. So there is very great reason to fear lest the light which has been kindled may be speedily extinguished and God may leave the pure understanding of the gospel to be possessed by very few.
How critical it is for us to maintain an attitude of faith and a good conscience before God! Without these gifts from him, we will certainly make shipwreck. How can the very fear of making shipwreck help us maintain faith and a good conscience before him and before fellow man? How should we treat those who have made shipwreck concerning faith? Do you ever reach out to them?
