The Cook’s have a vision for the church to be a multicultural, multi-generational church that is full of the love, grace and mercy of God that will reach our city, our region, and our world with the good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ through ministry both here and abroad…ministry through education and ministry to and through leaders in the body of Christ. Their mission is to REACH out to the world around us with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to REVIVE others by the power of the Holy Spirit, and to RESTORE people to their God-intended purpose and destiny.
