Where are you located?

12236 SW 128th St., Miami, FL  33186 in the Kendall Commercial Center.  We don’t look like a church on the outside but inside you encounter God's presence and warm and friendly people.


Where do I park?

There is plenty of parking in front and around the church.  For those in wheelchairs we recommend that you park on the south end of the church and use the ramp and walkway around the building.


Can I bring my children to church? 

Definitely!  We are a child-friendly church offering nursery care (by our professional childcare worker) and age specific Sunday school classes during the adult worship services.  If you are new, you are welcome to take your child to their worship area, or if you prefer, they may sit with you in the adult worship service.  One of our warm and helpful greeters will be glad to show you the way.


How do I become a Christian?

Becoming a Christian is the most important decision anyone can make – because it impacts not just the time you spend on earth but also where you will spend eternity.  You become a Christian by placing your faith in Jesus Christ as you ask Him to forgive your sins, and allow Him to become your Lord and Savior.  Receiving Christ is a matter of inviting Jesus into your life as you ask Him forgiveness for your sins and allowing Him to become your Lord and Savior.  We exist for this reason and would love nothing more than to guide you through this prayerful step of faith.  He will transform your life!


What do I wear? 

Comfortable clothes and shoes, that’s all!  Don’t worry about what you wear – just come to worship God and get to know us.


What do I bring?

If you have one, bring a Bible.  If you don’t have one, ask one of the Greeters and they will give you a N.T. to keep.  You can access your Bibles on line – we offer free wi-fi.


What you can take?

Most Sundays we have fresh breads and pastries available, so on your way out feel free to take some.  It's our way of saying “Thanks for coming!”

We believe the Bible in its original form to be the inspired, and only infallible, authoritative Word of God.


We believe in One God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

We believe in the Divine Nature of our Lord Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, which He still operates today, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His personal future return to this earth.

We believe that the salvation of man who is sinful and lost is only by the New Birth in Christ Jesus by the Holy Spirit, this being realized by faith through grace.

We believe in the Spirit-Filled Life. The believer is indwelt by the Holy Spirit whereby we are able to witness with power to the saving of souls and minister to the needs of the body through the gifts of the Spirit.

 We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; they that are saved unto resurrection of life and they that are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
