To LIVE OUT LOUD for Jesus by Intensifying His presence and carrying out His Purpose throughout the world as expressed in Luke 4:18-19.



Our purpose here at AMPLIFY Christian Church is to provide God-Centered gathering experiences that encourage seekers to accept Jesus as their Savior, build their Christian Character through Biblical education, and equip them for their ministry to the world in order to fulfill God’s mandate and exalt His name. We accomplish this in three ways:

Connect people to Their Creator. We believe that people are made to be in personal relationship with the God who created them.
That people would find a purpose worth living for and dying for. We believe people are made to participate with God in changing the world and impacting eternity.
Provide people with genuine relationships that result in life change. We believe people are made with the need for authentic friendships with other people.
WHAT WE BELIEVE God’s love transcends race, social status, denominational standing, age and gender.

“…God does not show favoritism.” – Acts 10:34 NIV

Here at Amplify, we love people without respect to their ethnic background, race, religious background, denominational background, age and/or financial status. We regard all people precious souls whom Jesus Christ loves and for whom he died.
 We seek to minister to the needs of the whole man – spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical and social.
“May the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and may your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:23

Jesus told us, his disciples, to make disciples of all nations. One of the most important values of AMPLIFY Christian Church is our mission to the world. It begins in our own community, and spreads to every nation. Here are a few of the ministries that you can become involved in at AMPLIFY Christian Church:


S.O.A.R. Sharing Our Abundant Resources

SOAR is a ministry of AMPLIFY Christian Church (ACC) designed to motivate every believer to follow the example of Jesus Christ and intentionally Share Our Abundant Resources (SOAR) every single day with anyone who may have a need, with special attention to the poor and vulnerable. This ministry is designed to shape believers to be what Christ has mandated us to be: people of powerful influence who are givers and not takers!

Worship Arts

The purpose of the Worship Arts Ministry is to engage, to equip, and to employ serious, committed believers – praisers, worshipers, minstrels, dancers, artists, and technicians –  as ministers in leading worship and evangelizing through the arts. Our audience is God and we use His platform, not for performance, but for influence.  We do not desire to draw attention to ourselves or to the art form we are using, but more importantly to usher people to the throne of God by offering and modeling authentic worship with pure hands and a clean heart. We strive to live a life of worship daily through prayer, study, fasting and service to others. We serve during every gathering experience with reverence, joy, and in the true Christian spirit of love and excellence.
This ministry provides loving, fun, safe and spiritually uplifting gathering experiences that will introduce youth to Jesus, build their character, advance them in their spiritual maturity, help them to discover their ministry mission/gifts, and ultimately equip them to live an obedient, committed, purposeful and unashamed life in Christ.
The Purpose of this ministry is to Get Men In, Get Men Healthy, Get Men Strong and Get Men Going! This is accomplished through men uniting in the spirit of brotherhood to express and deal with male-related issues, and how they can be resolved through our faith in Christ. Furthermore, this ministry seeks to provide Christian service to the community; to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with unsaved men; and to develop men for leadership roles in the church and community based upon the servant qualifications found in Acts 6:3.
The Institute of Spiritual Development (I.S.D.) offers specific courses of study regarding Christian Living and seeks to equip all individuals with the tools that God desires for them to have that will enable them to live a prosperous Kingdom Life here in this life as well as the hereafter.
…And Others!
“Love the Lord your God with all of your heart and with all of your soul and with all of your mind…Love your
neighbor as yourself. All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”
