Our Church History
God’s word gives you the operation of continuation of the dream, (Ephesians 4:11-12) “and He gave some apostles and some prophets; and some Evangelists; and some pastors and teachers for the perfecting of the saints, for the word of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.The interpretation of the dream can be found in his ministries as follows: Children, Youth, Young Adults, Singles, Couples, Family, Men and Women. Pastor Davis displays a spirit of humility. He understands that God’s work is not accomplished by his ability, but his availability to follow God’s leading. Matthew 10:41 – If we receive a prophet in the name of a prophet, we will receive a prophet’s reward.
