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.
Seeking the Resurrected Savior
He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay. Matthew 28:6
suggested further reading: 1 Corinthians 15:1–20
We now come to the closing scene of our redemption. For the lively assurance of our reconciliation with God arises from Christ, having come from hell as the conqueror of death, to show that he has the power of a new life at his disposal.
Paul justly says there will be no gospel and the hope of salvation will be vain and fruitless unless we believe that Christ is risen from the dead (1 Cor. 15:14). For in this Christ obtained righteousness for us and opened our entrance into heaven. In short, our adoption was ratified when Christ rose from the dead, exerting the power of his Spirit and proving himself to be the Son of God.
Though Christ manifested his resurrection in a different manner from what our fleshly sense would have desired, still we ought to regard the method which he approved as also the best. First, he went out of the grave without a witness so that the emptiness of the place might be the earliest indication of his resurrection. Second, Christ chose to have the message that he was alive announced to the women by the angels. Third, he appeared to the women, and then to the apostles on various occasions.
It is an astonishing display of the goodness of Christ that he kindly and generously presented himself alive to the women who did him wrong in seeking him among the dead. If he had not permitted them to come in vain to his grave, we might conclude with certainty that those who now aspire to him by faith will not be disappointed, for the distance of places does not prevent believers from enjoying him who fills heaven and earth by the power of his Spirit.
What great grace that Jesus reveals himself to those who do not have everything figured out before they come to him! Even if we seek him in wrong ways or in the wrong places, yet he comes to us in mercy without holding those sins against us. We can attribute our finding Christ to nothing but his grace.
