Family forms the first environment for the children born on earth. It bridges everyone from the natural birth to the existence standing individually before God. We are deeply aware of the importance of serving the families established on truth and nourishing them to be graceful in all aspects of life. The biblical virtue in terms of family is constantly taught and delivered through the seminars and meetings to uphold the families healthy.
“Haven’t you read that at the beginning the Creator made them male and female and said for this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.” (Matthew 19:4-5)
And the Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. “…So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of the man’s ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib (side) he had taken out of the man, and he brought her to the man. (Gen 2:18, 21 22)
Marriage is the divine will of God that reveals invisible and mysterious world of heavenly love on earth. It is the most vivid and clear demonstration of God’s love being incarnated through human relationship.
The man and woman meet and experience the union by love beyond the differences of emotion, sexuality and other various elements in life. They form a family setting up Christ as their mediator in the center. Man learns the essence of his existence deeply when he is joined in the relationship with somebody. God’s presence in the center of their relationship distinguishes Christian family from those made on secular culture and desire. Through the biblical tradition of the marriage shown in the scripture, Christians are to form the beautiful and pure marriage relationship blessed by God’s love and truth.Church offers a premarital seminar that covers
• The divine meaning of the marriage
• Biblical tradition of the marriage
• Family Church in the Kingdom of God

True praise pleases God more than offering an ox (Psalm 69:31). Music ministry is dedicated to performing music that praises God, gives glory to His holy name, and worships Him with honor. Worship for Sunday and Wednesday church services starts 15 minutes before service times, so come early with hearts full of thanksgiving to the Lord. Music ministry fellowship is a place where you can meet other musicians who are in similar situations as you, with the same dreams and hopes of the kingdom of God.
Music ministry works towards a goal of recovering our fellowship with God, uniquely fulfilling the will of God in each Christian's life in comforting God's people through worship, bringing the good news to lost souls who need the gospel, gaining unique personal experience in a performing arts ministry, and forming a supporting network with local and global artists who share the same passion, dream and faith. You are always welcome to join the music team if you have musical talents with heart of praising the Lord.
You will be invited for an audition and to hear the vision of the Worship team.

WHY SHOULD WE PRAY?
What we pray is the relationship with God. The prayer is the breath just like people who breathe. It’s the breath of believer.If the breath stops, the life is over. Just as the breath never stops, we should live as we always pray with faith and as we form the relationship with God well.
THEN, HOW CAN WE PRAY? (Matthew 6:9-13)
09 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10 Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11 Give us this day our daily bread.
12 And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
TO WHOM OUR PRAYER IS GIVEN?
It’s Father. Where is the Father? He is in heaven. Our prayer is towards Father, God in heaven.
There are five prayers. The two previous prayers are public, and the three prayers of the latter part are personal. When we pray, in order that our prayer goes to God, there is something we should ask before God, which is the public prayer; Hallowed be thy name and Thy kingdom come. May the name of God is hallowed by the one who believes in Jesus. And we should pray with earnest heart for Thy kingdom to come. The fundamental and essential topics were prayed so that our prayer may not become self-centered and egoistic. Next, one of the personal prayer of three things is regarding daily bread. This is the matter of today. Second is about the forgiveness. Asking for forgiveness is the issue of the past. This is the repentance for sins yesterday. Thirdly, lead us not into temptation. This is the issue of the future. We should pray not to be tempted. Even if the test comes, we should pray for letting us overcome it.
According to recent statistics the number of seniors steadily increases each year not only in developed countries but also in developing ones as a result of the bettering of living conditions. Therefore, there is a great need for senior ministry to be actively supporting the older generations.
Seniors can play a great role in the church. They have lived long lives and have accumulated experience on so many aspects of human existence that that make of them a valuable source of knowledge that can be transferred to younger generations.
Christian seniors know the value of mercy, compassion and love towards their neighbor. In the final stages of their lives God reveals to them the importance of being righteous, of opening their hearts to the Holy Spirit and to the grace of the Father. Senior can transfer those values not only to their congregations but also to all people in their communities.
Ministers and senior adults in church are invited to organize and perform activities in which seniors will play the main role. By working for Senior Ministry, elders in church can make a profound difference in their lives of those around them.
The vision that Teen Ministry maintains is to bring the everlasting hope of Jesus Christ to teenagers in this city. Though in a society where teenagers are exposed to numerous paths that lead them away from God, this generation has great potential in the eyes of the Lord. Once teens experience the salvation of Jesus Christ, teenagers will be a bright light in the darkest places and bring revival to the Church.
This ministry is dedicated to offer youth the care their spirit needs through offering opportunities that allow them to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ. Through providing teenagers with the resources they need, they will become powerful leaders in their schools and in their community. Additionally, this ministry focuses on raising spiritual mentors that will support local teenagers in following Jesus Christ and participating in the Kingdom of God.
