To Know Christ and Make Him Known Together
When we started in 1990, we had no money and no building, but the Lord has faithfully met our needs every step of the way. That meager beginning taught us that a church is not a building. A church is God's people, gathered in one place at one time to worship Him together.
After a few years of meeting in a motel conference room and later in an elementary school auditorium, the Lord provided 11 acres of property in the heart of Summerville. It happened in the middle of an economic downturn. The price was extraordinarily low. And just to show He could do it, the Lord provided funds to keep us from having to go into debt. The old adage, credited to Pastor Chuck Smith of Calvary Chapel, Costa Mesa, proved true: "Where the Lord guides, He provides!"
Over and over, the Lord proved faithful while we stayed on mission as that inn on the road to Jericho.
