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.
Revealing Truth to Babes
At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes. Matthew 11:25
suggested further reading: 1 Corinthians 2
It is no small matter that Christ here addresses the Father as Lord of heaven and earth, for in this manner he declares that God’s will is that the wise remain blind while the ignorant and unlearned people receive the mysteries of the gospel. There are many other passages that similarly point out to us that those who arrive at salvation are freely chosen by God because he is the Creator and Governor of the world, and all nations are his.
This teaching implies two things. First, those who do not obey the gospel do so not because they lack the power of God, who could easily bring all creatures into subjection to his government. Second, some arrive at faith while others remain hardened and obstinate to it because of God’s free election. For in drawing some and passing by others, God alone makes a distinction among men whose condition is by nature alike.
In choosing to reveal things to little children rather than the wise, God regards his own glory rather than the flesh, which is too apt to rise. If able and learned men lead the way, the general conviction of people would be to find faith by their own skill or work or learning. In no other way can the mercy of God be so fully known than by making a choice that clearly shows that whatever people offer in themselves is nothing.
Therefore human wisdom is justly thrown down so it may not obscure the praise of divine grace.
Our eyes are blind by nature, and we are unwilling and unable to open them. We do not want to see the truth. If our eyes have been opened, that should humble us; it is not on account of our wisdom or prudence but only because of God’s grace. He brings us to himself when we are nothing so that we might know that he is the author and finisher of our faith.
