Pulling Down Strongholds

Satan is real and his primary goal is to destroy each of us.  The Bible says this - "Be Alert! Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."  (1 Peter 5:8)  We must educate ourselves about his methods or we may be caught off guard and destroyed.  We invite you to come to one of our weekly meetings and allow God to lead you into the freedom that comes from knowing how to effectively resist the devil!  

Freedom Is Near

With a foundation of the Word, we can lead others to Freedom through Christ.  We help them discover the traps the enemy has set for them by healing wounds from the past, because that's what he most often uses to torment us.  

Whatever the cause -- addictions, depression, rejection, anger, occult involvement -- we can help.  

This is a safe place for you to find your healing and freedom.
