What to Expect


We want people to Experience Pentecost!  

We believe the New Testament is more than just history; it’s the pattern for how church should be done.  This emphasis on the supernatural is very much a part of what we are about.  We are a Word of Faith church with a vision to reach Central Virginia with truths that transform and power to confirm that message.

Powerful praise and worship, a friendly family atmosphere, relevant Bible teaching, and a strong emphasis on the move of the Holy Spirit are just some of the things you’ll experience and enjoy when you visit us.  We want you to be blessed and successful in every area of your life – spiritually, soulishly, physically, financially, and socially.
