The ministry of Word of Life
began in September of 1989. God started us off with a very simple vision: To teach people to HEAR the Word of God, to teach people to BELIEVE the Word of God, and to teach people to DO and OBEY the Word of God. God has never changed our vision and throughout the years we have been committed to His calling. Our church began with seven people in a home bible study and, some twenty-five years later, God has given us five buildings and two locations. But, most important of all, He has given us His Presence. Many people have been saved, many have been healed by the power of God, many have been delivered and set free, and many lives have been changed b y the awesome power of God's Word !
