Here are a few stories from people in our church and how God has impacted their lives. What's your story? We would love to hear about it!

amanda & Merrill

After many years of spiraling downward in addiction, our family was hurting and broken.  We distracted ourselves from the pain with alcohol, drugs, blame and resentment.  At the time of our family's greatest need, Jesus revealed His grace and mercy; first to one family member, and then to the rest of the family.  Within a year we decided as a family to be baptized in the name of Jesus.  His power has brought love, acceptance, forgiveness, abundant blessing and a joy for living to our family. He revealed His strength in our weakness.

DONNA'S STORY


GENESIS' STORY

I gave my heart to the lord at the age of seven. I knew at such a young age this was the best thing I could ever do - but following God still has its challenges. Feelings of loneliness washed over me and desires to seek approval from a worldly perspective. God quickly showed me that this was wrong. He told me that if I get into a close relationship with Him, those feelings of loneliness and desires to please others would leave me. I realized that God will always be there in every chapter of my life, standing right next to me. He wants me to focus on Him and not the world around me.

TINA'S STORY


Joanna's story

I surrendered my life to Jesus at age 16. My desires quickly changed - I stopped drinking, stealing, gossiping or seeking after approval from people. I was immediately flooded with peace and joy and I have felt God's guidance every day since. I'm amazed by the journey He has taken me on, the places I've gone and the people I've met. I also know that even when life is hard - God is with me, for better or for worse! Living for Him brings more satisfaction and pleasure than anything else in this world can offer.

KENNY'S STORY


KOJO'S STORY

I always felt like there was something more out there (God) but couldn’t figure out how to interact with Him or hear from Him. I feared that God had forgotten me and I often felt alone and scared - even at church. When I was 21 years old and living in Canada, I finally had my encounter with the true gospel of Christ Jesus and the person of the Holy Spirit. I found a new life and more importantly, He found me.

SONIA'S STORY


tracey's story

I was saved when I was around 6 years old at the Salvation Army.  Like most teens I decided to try my own way and thank heavens God brought myself and my husband back to him in 1996.  In 2014 I was diagnosed with Renal Cancer.  After they removed my kidney in 2015 the cancer spread to my hip and pelvic area and I was diagnosed as terminal.  What a shock to both Andrew and I. We did the only thing we knew to do and reached out to everyone we knew for prayer.  I felt it daily and when I thought I couldn’t get through the next surgery or treatment I could feel the prayers and God’s love lift me up.  The doctors continued to remind me these were just treatments and it was terminal.  In 2017 I had a major surgery and they determined the cancer was gone.  All the doctors involved were amazed and called it a miracle.  I explained to them it was God.  I am in a wheelchair now but I am cancer free and have been for 3 years.  I thank God for saving me and blessing us.  During this time, we won a vehicle just when we needed it and were also given a large amount of cash. God met all our needs and healed me and continues to get me through the related surgery and treatments. We give all the glory and praise to God for both physical healing as well as financial blessings.
