We believe a vital purpose of the Church is the stewardship of the Gospel message. We invite you to listen; every sermon is FREE and reflects the heart of what we believe.

In this message we see the beginning of the fulfillment of Jesus’ Acts 1:8 commission stating that these first century Christ followers would be spirit empowered witnesses in Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria, and the ends of the earth.

Even though they suffered greatly, these first century Christians weren’t silenced but instead preached the Gospel with boldness accompanied by signs and wonders. Philip is a great example of…
