Statement of Confession: I believe in the Trinity--Father, Son and Holy Spirit; The Three are One in the Father. I believe that Jesus is the Savior to those that accept Him in genuine repentance of their sins through faith as their Lord and Savior. I believe that baptism--immersion, burial--is an outward show to the world of their acceptance of salvation by Jesus for His dying, resurrection and His sitting at the right hand of the Father in heaven. This ministry is FREE.

Father we thank You for this Lord's Day that we Christians celebrate on the first day of the week as is in biblical times.
Thank you for Your grace and mercy to allow us whom are alive this day that may not see the next moment or ending of this day; we all want to say, Hallelujah to You Father! In Jess' precious and holy name. Amen.
