“…and on this rock I will build MY church…”
                                             Matthew 16:18

Our mission as the church, in obedience to the Word of God, is to enlist, encourage, and equip as many people as possible in becoming dedicated followers of Jesus. We understand this lifelong journey includes essential elements such as…

Commitment to Worship

        Christ’s followers will hear and obey what God says. In worship, we hear a message from God’s word, and we grow in knowledge of His will for our lives. Through worship, we refocus our lives on God. All who love God and follow Jesus commit to – and enjoy the privilege of – worshiping regularly.

Commitment to our Community

        Christ’s followers are to be known by their love for each other. Following Jesus is an individual decision, but the journey is made in the company of other followers. Christ offers a new life, a connected life, and in His church all are welcome through humble obedience.

Commitment to Serve

        Christ’s followers are to embrace a life of service. Love for God is demonstrated by showing love to other people, not just in words but in deeds of mercy.  Following Jesus will lead us to others we can help.


Garrett YoungIMG_3713

        Garrett was born in San Antonio, Texas on April 22, 1992, to a christian and military family.  His father served in the Air Force for 26 years, but was fortunate to not move around as much as military families usually do.  He spent 7 years ( ages 7-14) living in Deatsville, Alabama.  He then moved to Colorado Springs, Colorado, where he attended high school.  After graduation, he returned to Alabama and enrolled at Auburn University in August 2010.  He attended school there until he started working for the university in 2012, and continued working there until 2018.  On February 6, 2016, Garrett and Jessica started their life together and lived in Auburn.  Their first daughter, Riley, was born on April 10, 2018 and then Garrett decided to attend the Memphis School of Preaching.  They moved near family in Blue Ridge, Georgia and then Columbus, Mississippi in order to have the ability to travel to various churches to gain preaching experience and to obtain support for school.  In June 2019 they moved to Memphis and began school.  Their second daughter, Madison, was born shortly after on July 26.  Garrett and Jessica were both raised in the Lord’s church and are thankful for being raised in the truth.  

Favorite Verse– 2 Peter 3:18— But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  To him be glory both now and forever. Amen.

  1. I am Earl White’s sister and wondered if you knew that he is in Decatur hospital. He had complications from his diabetes and was unconscious Thursday and Friday. He is conscious now and is finally talking. He is in ICU. Just wanted you to know. Helen Sherrill
