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.
Trusting God as Father and Savior
Even as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness. Galatians 3:6
suggested further reading: Ephesians 1:11–23
It is helpful here to understand how Abraham believed in God. If Abraham had simply believed there was a God in heaven, that could not have justified him, for the pagans believed as much. If Abraham had simply believed that God was the judge of all the earth, that would not have sufficed, either. But God said to Abraham, “Abram, I am thy shield, and thy exceeding great reward,” and “I will be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.” He also said all nations would be blessed in Abraham (Gen. 15:1; 17:7).
God spoke with Abraham, testifying that he counted him a member of his family and one of his own children. He also said that he would be Abraham’s God. When Abraham accepted this promise, he was justified. How is this? Well, when God presented Abraham with his bounty and grace, Abraham believed and accepted God’s word. In this his salvation was completely secure.
Now we have a much clearer idea of what it means to be justified by faith. It does not mean we possess a vague notion that God exists, but rather that we know him as our Father and our Savior, since he reveals himself thus in his Word. Through Jesus Christ, we are united and joined to God.
Although we are wretched creatures, full of wickedness, God will still accept us as his own and find us pleasing in his sight. This is only possible because our Lord Jesus Christ mediates between God and man. Having such a promise, we must entirely rest upon it and not doubt that God will be favorable to us to the end. When we call upon him, we may find all our refuge in him, leaving the world behind us and pressing on in the hope of eternal life.
Saving faith is trust in Christ. It is falling helplessly into his arms and resting there, confident that he will take care of us. Though Christ had not yet appeared, Abraham had this same trust. He did not simply believe that God had promised something; he trusted in the promise. Do you trust Christ?
