We exist to reach people with the simple life-giving message of Jesus that they might realize all that God has planned for them. Our weekend services are designed to reach the un-churched and un-saved and our small groups are geared towards encouraging and building great relationships with one another. God is at work at Wilson Praise and Worship. We invite you to see for yourself how exciting church can be when the focus is simple and people are free to go after God with passion.
You won't find any suits and ties here. We're just normal people, looking to be more like Jesus. We have imperfect messy lives, but we are pursuing and experiencing a transforming relationship with Jesus and with each other. Everybody is welcome here whatever your story, your questions, doubts or struggles.
We invite you to one of our Sunday services to experience the life-changing power that happens when imperfect people worship a perfect God, Jesus!
"That’s plain enough, isn’t it? You’re no longer wandering exiles. This kingdom of faith is now your home country. You’re no longer strangers or outsiders. You belong here, with as much right to the name Christian as anyone. God is building a home. He’s using us all—irrespective of how we got here—in what he is building. He used the apostles and prophets for the foundation. Now he’s using you, fitting you in brick by brick, stone by stone, with Christ Jesus as the cornerstone that holds all the parts together. We see it taking shape day after day—a holy temple built by God, all of us built into it, a temple in which God is quite at home."
Ephesians 2:19-22 (MSG)
We are real people infused with dynamic faith, committed to a common vision, joined together in the covenant love of our Creator. We believe in multicultural, multigenerational ministry, who’s sole intention is to reach our community for Christ. We firmly believe that you should come as you are to the feet of Jesus, for he is capable of transforming a broken and contrite heart into a blooming soul that brings Him joy. Our gatherings are very casual but we make it a priority to focus our attention on God's Word and to give Him all the glory in everything we do.
"But if some unbelieving outsiders walk in on a service where people are speaking out God’s truth, the plain words will
bring them up against the truth and probe their hearts. Before you know it, they’re going to be on their faces before God, recognizing that God is among you."
1 Corinthians 14:25
"Relevant, Authentic, Inspiring" - these are some of the words we hear from our guests as they explain their first WPW experience. We hope you'll agree. With a simple focus on worship and the Bible, you will have the chance to experience the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. Each service is designed with you and your friends in mind so you can invite them to check it out too.
Here's all you need to know before you show up for your first Sunday morning gathering: Come as you are. Although our time will be taken up by singing, teaching and praying, you don't need any manual to figure out how to fit in. Jesus simply says: "Come to me" and we say the same. Just come as you are!
"Wow! I had my first visit today and I can hardly wait to go back! Warm, welcoming congregation who greet you and make you feel like you have been part of the family for years - wonderful praise and worship music - and the pastor is AWESOME! Looking forward to making this my church home."
