Through different worship services and many ministries and programs, we love to serve. We do not just serve the people who come into the Church buildings; we go out in to the world, to reach the arms of Jesus' love, to everyone in Morehead City, North Carolina, and even outside of the country! Our lofty mission is grounded and founded in the Word of Christ.
