Frequently Asked Questions

"So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you." (Luke 11:9)

Q: "Where are you located and what time do your services start?"
A: We are located at 1133 E. Shields (between Blackstone and Maroa) in Fresno. Our Sunday morning service starts at 10:00 am.

Q: "What denomination are you and what do you believe?"
A: We are a non-denominational, Bible believing, Christ-centered church. We simply believe in Jesus and His word, the Holy Bible, as the only source of spiritual truth and eternal life.

  • We believe that the God of the Holy Bible is the awesome, all powerful, all knowing, all perfect, all just, all merciful Creator of all things.
  • We believe that God is One in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the Holy Bible is the Holy Spirit inspired Word of God and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in right living.
  • We believe that we are all sinners and that we cannot save ourselves from God's perfect law (the Ten Commandments).
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is the only way to salvation, is the only truth you can trust, and is the only source of eternal life with the Father in heaven.
  • We believe that Jesus Christ is returning soon to separate the saved from the lost.
  • We believe (based on Biblical standing) that the saved in Jesus will be eternally glorified in His presence (heaven) and the lost without Jesus will be eternally separated from God because of their own sins and rejection of Jesus (hell).
  • We believe that we are mandated by God to awaken our community to the reality and historical truth of Jesus Christ before it is too late.

Q: "What Bible version do you use?"
A: Our main text is the New King James Version (NKJV) of the Holy Bible.

Q: "Do you offer child care?"
A: Yes, we provide a nursery for infants and toddlers, child care for children, and an active youth program for teenagers.

Q: "Is your church active in community outreach?"
A: Yes, we offer several opportunities to share the Gospel in action through vibrant and active community outreach and ministry (e.g. Street Ministry, Marriage Ministry, Community Breakfast and BBQ Outreach, and small group Bible Studies).

Q: "Are you a Charismatic or Pentecostal type church?"
A: While we encourage the freedom of worship, joyful Christian expression, and the use and sharing of Spiritual gifts (according to the guidelines given in God's Word), we are not considered a Charismatic or Pentecostal type church. We are a non-denominational church - we are simply under the guidance and ownership of Jesus Christ. God is in control and He has given us His Word in regards to the proper and orderly use of His gifts. We believe that NOTHING is impossible with God including, but not limited to, salvation, forgiveness, radical life transformation, miraculous healing, and whatever else God wills to do!

Q: "I am not perfect. Will you still welcome me to your church?"
Yes, with open arms! The church is for people who admit that they are not perfect. Christians understand that they need a Savior. Our goal is to equip you to grow in a personal relationship with a loving and forgiving Father through Jesus Christ. Jesus came to heal and save people who admit that they are sick in sin. Jesus did not come to save the arrogant ones who think that they have it all together (Mark 2:17). So, humbly come as you are and let Jesus heal you and make you whole in His grace. Join us every Sunday to celebrate life in Him!
