We believe that prayer is an intimate opportunity to know God through deep conversations and misunderstood awkward silence, as we offer our flaws and imperfections willingly. Through prayer we develop a relationship with God through uncertainties and difficulties with a determined will and mind to stay focused on the desires of God for your life.
Evangelism & Outreach
We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of the living God.
We believe Jesus Christ died for our sins and on the third morning He rose for our Justification.
According to scripture, accepting Christ as your Savior is the only way to heaven.
We believe in baptism by submersion in Jesus’ Name

During our second worship service, it was made abundantly clear that Encouraging Word is to be a house of prophesy and deliverance. A place where lives are changed forever. We are called to the broken, the mended, the prosperous, and the poor. No matter what walk of life you are in, you belong here.
EWC welcomes you with big hearts and open arms. Feel free to explore the resources found here, and to visit us in person. Come and experience the power and love of God in an unprecedented way. We’d love to meet you!
