Update 2-4-2013 There website is under construction so I will give them an okay until I know what changes they are undergoing.

They have talent there, that's why I rated it okay. If what the other RIA rater said was true that they're endorsing Juanita Bynum, Benny Hinn and so called Prophet Kim Clement consider it two stars, (instead of my three star rating).

Whenever I start getting too carried away in awe of talented singers, prophets, preachers or teachers in the church and on Christians television a strange thing happens. I get a mental picture of Numbers 22 (in the Old Testament part of the bible) where God used an Ass as in Donkey to speak to a wayward gifted prophet to correct him of his mistake. That brings me right back down to reality to never make idols out of humans, all humans are flawed... Myself included.

This cult is ran by a egotistical man who seeks to use religion to control his adherents. 'Pastor James Thorsten' has even disregarded the laws of man as he has not reported criminal activity to the proper authority's. Instead, there is a continuous cover up which is aided by the escape from reason that has permeated this congregation.

This church focuses on the outward manifestations of individuals to define their standing before God. There is a constant pressure to conform to the evolving theology of one man. All others must fall in line or be out of Gods will.

This organization has also supported the scandalous television preachers/ prophets that have shamed evangelical Christianity. Benny Hinn, John Bevere, Juanita Bynmun, Kim Clement, Clarice Fluett and Ken Copeland are a few of these heretics.

Timothy tells of the qualifications for church leadership. One important reality is the conduct of a Pastors family. The family of this pastor is not in order and yet he seeks to control the family's of others. This has resulted in broken families, bitterness, divorce and oppression.

WARNING: First time visitor will see a very welcoming group and upbeat, uplifting atmosphere, but after more involvement, you will be indoctrinated with the hyper-authoritarian Discipleship/Shepherding system. Go to the following website:

I was at this church for a mid week meeting. some of the participants seemed very angry and I don't think there was adequate supervision to deal with such potential violent behavior asThere were children in close proximity and these men really had some issues, it was obvious many participants did not have mutual respect for one another. At one point one participant was calling another a c**t, and other 4 letter words and insults. these guys had full access to the bldg. after thinking about what I observed, it made me wonder if the church congregation at large would be happy with such behavior occuring under their roof.
