If you become a part of this faith community, you'll discover that we're extremely excited about what God is doing here as He releases the resurrection power from our lives. You'll discover that our leaders take our assignment from God seriously--to love and care for His people as selfless shepherds, to lay down our lives for the people we lead. We sometimes fail, but God helps us through our failures as we open our lives to His protective love and the love of one another. You'll discover that the marriages, families, and friendships in our community of faith are valued and often very close, that we gather in smaller groups to love, support and pray for one another earnestly. You'll meet people at Church of the Open Door who will tell you that if it wasn't for what Christ is doing in their lives and the encouragement and support they receive from their friends in this church, they would never have made it through tough times.
