Our Mission & Vision

This body of believers currently meets just west of Coral Springs Drive on Wiles Road in Coral Springs Florida; which is just the “headquarters” for the real ministry that happens here.

As a culturally diverse body of believers we think we are wonderfully suited to meet the needs of our South Florida Community.


Jesus said “Love the Lord, thy God, with all your heart, mind, soul and body” and “Love your neighbor as yourself”.

Our passion and goal is to love God and love people, while holding fast to Biblical Truths.  We are a Southern Baptist Church and are committed to supporting our local Gulfstream Baptist Association, the Florida Baptist as well as national Southern Baptist Convention.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, the absolute inerrancy of scripture, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
