Our Mission

The vision of Agape is unity through love. God has called this ministry to build bridges within the body of Christ and in our local community. We are personally committed to the unity of all of God’s people and to sharing the good news of salvation with the spiritually lost. This ministry will not discriminate in membership on the basis of color, race, religious background, origin, sex, physical handicap; nor will this ministry associate with any church or other organization which does not adhere to these principles.


Exalt the Lord Jesus Christ


Edify the saved.


Evangelize the lost.


Empower the people of God to change the world.

Our Beliefs

We believe... in One God; God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit/Ghost.

The Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God, was conceived of the Holy Spirit, born of a virgin Mary, lived, was crucified, was buried, and was resurrected on the third day. He ascended into Heaven and is now seated at the right hand of God the Father.
The Lord Jesus Christ is fully God and fully man.
The Bible is the Word of God; fully inspired and written under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, and is our rule of faith and practice.
All are born sinners, the Holy Spirit convicts us of sin, and the Lord Jesus Christ paid the price for sin by shedding his precious blood on the cross as the atonement of sin. Those who repent of their sin and personally accept Jesus Christ as Savior receive forgiveness of sin and everlasting life.
The working and operation of the Holy Spirit, His gifts, and His baptism. Also that He will manifest the evidence of His presence in an individual.
Every Christian should strive to live a holy life, using Jesus Christ as our example.
Every Christian should read, pray, and fellowship with God on a daily basis, to grow spiritually and naturally in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

The members of the body of Christ are the Church of which Jesus Christ is the chief cornerstone.
God has given everyone a purpose in life. Our job is to see His will for our lives and to do those things He commands us to do.
Look for the personal return of the Lord Jesus Christ, who will come back for His Church.
Baptism is in the process of salvation and is a commandment from the Lord. Baptism should be done by immersion following one’s acceptance of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
The Lord Jesus left two ordinances for us to follow until He returns; the observance of the Lord’s supper and baptism.
The literal washing of feet as a sign of humility in the body of Christ.
Worshipping and praising the Lord with the freedom of raising and clapping our hands, singing and dancing.

Changing the world, one heart at a time
