WELCOME!

Welcome to the Cross & Flame Ministries Church website. I am glad you have chosen to spend a few moments looking around, discovering our church family.

We are a group of people committed to following Jesus. That means we worship him with vigor and joy, we encourage prayer in church and throughout life. That means we love people outside the church through generosity, invitation, and compassion.

Our hope is that all people will feel loved and welcomed into our church family. And once here, we pray that people will either meet God for the first time, or find inspiration to strengthen your ongoing Christian faith journey. Come as you are. Check us out, but more importantly, seek the truth of God that can only be known when one knows Jesus.

While you are browsing our website, you will learn about our ministries and get a glimpse of who we are. Find the worship service that’s right for you, and come visit.  My prayer is you will be so inspired, you will want to make one of the locations of Cross & Flame Ministries your church home.

God’s richest blessings to you!
Pastor Larry Gilbert
