Our mission is to enhance the spiritual vitality of the individual believer in Jesus Christ. We believe strong, mature disciples will live with integrity and victory in their daily lives and will ’go and make disciples’. These disciples become the building blocks of strong families which in turn become the dynamic for community transformation.
Our mission begins with God and our walk with Him.
Exalt God through worship.
Edify the Church through fellowship.
Equip the Church through discipleship.
Expand the Church through evangelism.
Enhance the lives of others through ministry.
We are a spirit filled, evangelical congregation within the Church of God denomination. Click an item below to learn more about our core beliefs.

pastors john & kerry lalonde
Founding Pastors John and Kerry responded to God’s call in 1991 to establish a spirit filled, evangelical church in Cypress, Texas. Since its humble beginnings in their Fairfield home, the church has progressed through several locations and name changes. But they have always continued to serve the Cypress area as a strong, Bible-based, charismatic congregation.
John and Kerry have 4 children, 14 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
Terry and Michelle Hickman
Associate Pastor Terry Hickman is an ordained minister through the Church of God. It is his driving passion and desire for the body of Christ to look like Jesus by becoming not only a hearer of God’s word but a doer of God’s word- loving a lost and dying world. By embodying the perfect love of Christ, we can truly transform the world around us. As He is love, so we are called to become love.
Terry and Michelle have 4 children.
Nathan & Rhiannon LaLonde
Music Minister Nathan LaLonde and his wife Rhiannon have hearts worship. With Nathan, praise and worship is more than just bringing the congregation together in song. It’s leading them into the presence of God- helping them shed the concerns of the outside world and step into a spiritual space where they can connect with and hear from the Holy Spirit. With renewed spirits and open hearts, they can accept the message that God has for them.
Nathan and Rhiannon have 4 children.
