“Canaan is a place where no stranger has the right to feel strange” – Rev. Dr. Gadson L. Graham
Due to the ongoing state of the Covid-19 pandemic all Sunday services will be held virtually. Prayer meetings and Bible Study will be held via phone conference until further notice.
Sunday Social Gathering Services have been cancelled. We are worshiping at home through prayer. Please continue to contact the church or check the website for future updates.
Father God we thank You for life and strength. As our nation and world is being shaken by this Cornonavirus pandemic we look to you for all our help. We decree and declare that the present situations and circumstances we are facing will not determine our future to be a discouraging end. Our hope is based on YOUR promise in Isaiah 41:10 “Fear not for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with MY righteous hand.” Father God we ask for YOUR healing for those who have the virus, for those who have lost their lives because of it. Please grant their families comfort and peace. We pray that a cure is developed swiftly to contain the spreading of it. We pray for the medical profession as they endure to help those in need. We pray for those who have been and will be affected financially because of it. We thank and Praise YOU God that this too shall pass and that we will all be more united as one with You. In Jesus Name! Amen!!!

Philosophy of Ministry
In order to accomplish our mission we will faithfully pursue seven basic philosophies in our ministries:
- EXALT the Savior through dynamic worship.
- EVANGELIZE the Unbeliever through outreach.
- ESTABLISH the New Believer in the basic doctrines of the faith.
- ENCOURAGE every Believer to cultivate an intimate, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
- EQUIP every Believer to do ministry through gift identification.
- EDIFY one another through the exercising of spiritual gifts.
- EMBRACE one another so that everyone feels loved, cared for, and accepted and enjoys being a part of our fellowship.
