Lord keep me day by day

In a pure and perfect way

I want to live, I want live Lord

in that building not made by hands


I'm just a stranger here

Travelling through this barren land

Something I know, there's a building

in that building not made by hands


Lord keep my body strong

So that I can do no wrong

Lord give me grace just to win this Christian race

to a building not made by hands



There is none like You 

No one else can touch my heart like You do 

I could search for all eternity Lord 

And find there is none like You 




If you confess the Lord, call Him up

If you confess the Lord, call Him up

If you confess the Lord, call Him up

If you confess the Lord, call Him up


If you believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost

Call Him up and tell Him what you want.


When darkness comes your way, call Him up

He'll brighten up your day, call Him up

When darkness comes your way, call Him up

He'll brighten up your day, call Him up


If you believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost
Call Him up and tell Him what you want.


Delight thyself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.

Even though sometimes we stumble, even though sometimes we fall

Call Him up and tell Him what you want.



Can't stop praising His name

I just can't stop praising His name

I just can't stop praising His name

When we approach God's Holy Table, we do so with respect and reverence for who God is. It is not done with noise, commotion, moving around, or confusion. Please respect God by respecting His Holy Table.




The church acknowledges as its head God, the Creator of all heaven and earth, Jesus Christ the Son of God, and the Holy Spirit, the Comforter. It acknowledges as brothers and sisters in Christ, all who share in this confession. It believes that all of those who are committed to building God's Kingdom and strive to keep His commandments are invited to partake of the Lord's Supper and that all such, with their families, are invited to the Ordinance of Baptism.




I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth; and in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day, he arose from the dead; he ascended into heaven and sat on the right hand of God, the Father Almighty: from thence, he shall come to judge the quick and the dead. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Church (universal), the communion of saints, the forgiveness of sin, the resurrection of the body, and life everlasting.     Amen!

I Corinthians 11: 23 – 34


Pastor:             For I have received of the Lord that I also delivered unto you. That the Lord Jesus, the same night in which he was betrayed, took bread:


People:           And when he had given thanks, he broke it and said Take eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me.


Pastor:              After the same manner, also he took the cup when he had supped, saying; this cup is the New Testament in my blood: this does ye, as often as ye drink it, in remembrance of me.


People:           For as often as ye eat this bread and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord’s death till he comes.


Pastor:             Wherefore, whosoever shall eat this bread and drink this cup of the Lord unworthily shall be guilty of the body and blood of the Lord.


People:           But let a person examine themselves, and so let them eat of that bread, and drink of that cup.


Pastor:             For they that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to themselves, not discerning the Lord’s body.


People:           For this cause, many are weak in [Faith] and sick among you, and many sleep.


Pastor: For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.


People:           But when we judge, we are chastened of the Lord, that we should not be condemned with the world.


Pastor: Wherefore, my friends, when ye come together to eat, tarry one for another.


All:      And if a person hungers, let them eat at home; that they come not together to this table, disregarding its purpose, and unto condemnation.  And the rest will I set in order when I come

God is doing a new thing and taking us to a new level. He calls us to seek Him and will do miracles in our midst. This year we are praying for miracles in our lives, the lives of our families, and our Church family. As we pray and seek His face, we are going to give God Majestic Praise along the way. The songwriters said: I seek a miracle every day and I want to Praise Him.

We invite you to join us for Early Morning Prayer with the Pastor

at 8:00 am on Monday mornings.


Prayer Line: 1-605-313-4818

Access Code: 702588#.



Since Wednesday, May 17th, we have started the study of 1 Kings. The study picks up with David making Solomon king to succeed him on the throne. Solomon had mixed results, with his wealth and wisdom being known worldwide. He built palaces and cities, and a beautiful temple.-The house of the Lord did not match. But while on the throne, he also allowed idol worship to creep into the kingdom. And after his death, a civil war tore the nation in two. Successive kings were mainly terrible, and the prophet Elijah had dramatic confrontations with King Ahab, who could forget Jezebel on the scene.  Join us Wednesday nights at 7:30 pm.

Does that also come?


  1. How or why do you give Majestic Praise to God when others are

blessed and offer No praise?


  1. Have you found God to be a sustainer in your life when He has not

been a deliverer?


  1. Can God trust you when Satan   raises his ugly head, and things go

wrong in your life?

  1. Is it an honor to be chosen by God to endure suffering?


  1. Are you a JOB Saint?


  1. Can you say: What I received from God was not punishment but preparation?


  1. Have you seen God give you strength when you have been weak?


  1. What is your working definition of “God’s Favor?


  1. Has God shown himself to be a" Kinsmen Redeemer" in your life?
