About Us & What We Believe
How we started and where we've been is NOT as important as where we're going, but if you want to get aboard for the journey it does help to get a sense of what brought us here.
Its easier to prepare for what's ahead when you understand how we got to where we are and why.
As a church we believe in proudly carrying our Faith out of Sunday Services and holding it up high over our heads, loudly proclaiming the power of a Faith that transforms our lives, the people we meet and the world around us.
Charismatic Christian Church believes The Living Word
truly takes root when we let the Power of The Holy Spirit work through us in our daily lives.
