Pastor David Moore


I was blessed to be raised in a Christian home. My parents taught me Bible stories; took me to church; but most importantly, they set the example from my childhood on, by actually living the surrendered Christian life. While I was still a child, I started to realize that my parents had a very special relationship with God.

At the age of eight, I asked Jesus to be my Lord and Savior. I then began to pray, asking the Lord what He would have me do with my life. While I was still a student at Samford University, God responded by planting in my heart the desire to spread the Good News that His Son, Jesus Christ, died for the sins of all, so that we could be saved from our sins. The Lord also helped me to understand that each Christian must have a growing walk with, and the knowledge, of our Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

Upon graduating from Samford University, I began to realize that God was calling me to serve as a Minister of the Gospel. I finally surrendered my life in obedience to the Lord’s call, in the year of 1992.

It is my conviction, that each church is called to share the Gospel with its community and to help its members grow closer to the Lord each day. The Church that accomplishes this mission will do so by developing its members into Godly leadership; fully understanding that they have been called to serve on mission with the Lord Jesus Christ.
