For the Praise of His Glory
 
Having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. Ephesians 1:11,12
 
We were created as people with a purpose, and that purpose is exemplified in the gospel. The gospel is the power of God. When it is declared compellingly from the Scriptures, amazing things happen. Lives are changed, hardened idolatries flee the human heart, families are restored, neighborhoods are renewed, and whole cities can be changed. So we will preach the gospel. We will counsel with the gospel. We will celebrate the gospel in song. We will remember the gospel with bread and cup. We will learn to live in light of the gospel in every sphere of life. From our personal lives to our homes, to our neighborhoods, to the vocations we take in the city.

CHRISTMAS 2017 - OPEN HOUSE PRE-LAUNCH OF KICK-BACK AT THE HANG-OUT
In 2017, we had planned for Craig L. Henderson to be our first guest person to be interviewed on "The Jesus Show" for the pre-launch of the Kick-Back At The Hang-Out which will take place during Christmas Month 2017, Sunday, December 10, 2017, but God transitioned Craig from Earth to Heaven on February 3, 2016.  Craig was the younger brother and only sibling of our founder. As a result, our founder will be interviewed in place of his brother and will share his brother's Christian Journey and Legacy to all attendees.  

Inasmuch, back in 1995. Craig left the church because he was disappointed that one of the churches in his community was not supportive of him and his brother when their father passed away of cancer which caused Craig to lose faith in the church, but not God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, Craig rejoined the church in 2014 and was a passionate, devoted, and faithful attendee of his new church called My Passion Church in Maple Grove, Minnesota.  

In 2015, Craig was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and diabetes by his doctors.  Due to his faith in God and the prayers of his family and friends, he had a remarkable testimony of how God healed his body and provided him with an abundant life.  Come hear Craigs's life story told by our founder and his brother as to how God allowed Craig to experience miracles in his life and be a Christian role model.
