Welcome

We are a church on a mission, because God has given us a vision.  We desire to reach as many people as possible in the Parkersburg area with the Good News.  If you’ve never gone to church before, or have dropped out for whatever reason, we welcome you.  God offers forgiveness to anyone who is willing to confess their sins and come to him. And so, we also offer forgiveness. We are all sinners who need a Savior.
