Teaching. Preaching. Learning. Growing. Praise the Lord! I’m Pastor Michael Jakes, and these are the goals of this Cross-centered ministry. I’d like to thank you for taking the time to visit. While you're here please visit 'The Blog', where you'll find biblical truth on a vast array of subjects relevant to today's Church. You can also check out our 'Featured Sermons' page, for several videos that will encourage your walk. Finally, on our 'Podcasts' page, scroll down to find all of our various teaching series, lessons, and devotions. All in all, we seek to be an aid in the'equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry' . Embedded within our teaching is the Message of the Cross, which is the foundation for all Christian doctrine. We hope you leave our site having been thoroughly enriched and encouraged by the Word of God.
