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.
But unto every one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Christ. Ephesians 4:7
suggested further reading: 2 Thessalonians 1
Let each one of us look to himself, for we shall each give account of the benefits that God has bestowed upon us (Luke 16:2). The more a person has received, the more he will be blamed if he does not discharge his duty in serving his neighbors. The purpose of God’s gifts is to edify one another so that God’s temple may grow among us and be further built until it reaches full perfection.
You see, then, how we ought to use the spiritual gifts that we have received from God. For the same reason, those who know the gospel should show by the conduct of their whole life that they are the children of light, and not be like blind wretches that wander in darkness (Luke 16:8).
Let us learn to make God’s gifts serviceable in such a way that he may be glorified in them. In that respect, we are told about the measure of those gifts so that we should not plead that this or that person fails to offer us a good example. For when it is a question of commendation, every one of us makes himself believe, and would persuade the entire world to believe, that he is most excellent. In the meanwhile, we do not consider that God has doubly bound us to him in promising to show us such bountifulness that he has set us higher than our neighbors.
Let us give better consideration to what we have done, both generally and particularly.
To whom much is given, much is required. It is a terrible travesty that many men and women whom God has gifted in extraordinary ways have used those gifts in rebellion against him. But how wonderful it is to see great gifts used in the service of God! Whether our gifts are greater or lesser than those of others, let us be sure to use them in God’s service. How can you do so?
