Who We Are
We are a church located in International Falls, Minnesota.
We are a multiethnic, economically diverse, servant minded people, committed to Great Commission living.
"And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15,16. The church then is a group of born again people (those who accepted the biblical account of Jesus Christ being God, who came to earth to be the sacrifice for the sins of the world, and trusted in that act to be the only and complete means to receive eternal live and forgiveness from their sins.), who have been so radically changed by that transaction of faith that we join together to share this experience, worship the God of so great a salvation and encourage one another in the pursuit of greater intimacy with our great father and Lord Jesus Christ.
"And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers." Acts 2:42
The ministry is not focused on felt needs of a self driven society but rather on surrender to Christ centered living, believing that fellowship with Christ is the greatest need of all men. We encourage all who come, to embrace a servant like attitude (valuing others more than oneself), knowing that this will bring the greatest peace and joy into ones life. The ministry seeks to involve all its members in service toward their church family and the community, believing that in this culture it is a major means of maturing ones relationship with their Lord. We must not only be hearers of the word only but doers. Christianity is not a spectator sport!
