The mission is simple.

Love God. Love Others. Make Disciples.

We press forward toward the one mission clearly defined for us in the Great Commission and Great Commandment -

love God, love others, and make disciples. 

It isn't about programs, activities, or special emphasis.  It is our DNA... who we are and who we were created to be. 

We are just being obedient to what we know God has told us to do.  You are invited to join us in this journey forward. 

Come be a part of a people committed to loving God with all we have and loving others as Jesus loves us. 

We believe in the

Power of God's Word

Join us each week as we open the Word together.  God's Word is powerful and life changing.  It encourages, convicts, challenges, strengthens, and transforms us.  There are plenty of opportunities to dig in the Word together - Sunday Morning Worship, The Gathering on Sunday Nights, and Wednesday Nights for adults, students, and children.

Sunday Morning Worship Services are streamed live each week at 10:30am as well as on the radio locally at 92.9fm.  You can watch the live broadcast below. 

Previous weeks are available here and on our YouTube and Facebook pages.

"Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,  to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!  Amen."

Ephesians 3:20-21

We are for

Our Community

While our church may sit at the corner of Caldwell and Frost in downtown Hazlehurst, we live at the corner of Christ and community.  We believe God placed us right where we are so that we can connect our neighbors to Christ. In an increasingly divided world, we want you to know we are in your corner.  God loves you and so do we!


"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,  and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.

And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age"

Matthew 28:19-20

We believe in the

Body of Christ

As believers, we are blessed to be a part of a special place. Call it the community of faith, the family of God, or the church, it is the body of Christ.  Connected together by His design we serve together for His glory.  There are many ways we see this expressed joyously throughout the week.  Find your place here as we walk this journey together.
