Our Virtual Worship Service will occur on Sundays at 11:00 am.

ALL In-person meetings are canceled or moved to a virtual platform.



The most important decision that you make is to establish a personal relationship with God, through Jesus Christ. Accepting Jesus into your life is as simple and significant as "ABC"...

  • ADMIT: Admit to God that, like all other people, you have sinned and made mistakes. (Romans 3:23)
  • BELIEVE: Believe that Jesus is God's Son, who died to pay for our sins, rose again, and is alive today. (John 3:16)
  • CONFESS: Confess your faith in Jesus Christ and invite Jesus to be your Savior and Lord. (Romans 10:9-10)
    • If you believe this in your heart, we invite you to pray this simple prayer of faith: "Dear God, thank you for making me and loving me, even when I've ignored you and gone my own way. I realize I need you in my life and I'm sorry for my sins. I ask you to forgive me. Jesus, thank you for dying on the cross for me. Please help me to understand it more. As much as I know how, I want to follow you from now on. I accept your gift of salvation. Please come into my life and help me to grow in love and in faith. Amen." (Romans 10:13)

If you prayed this prayer or if you have questions about salvation or connecting to God, please contact Rev. David Williams, our Director of Membership, at (614) 930-2219.
