Our mission is to provide a safe environment to allow healing from emotional and spiritual pain. We desire to allow the Holy Spirit to minister hope, love, and freedom which comes from Jesus Christ.

Many people have never talked about their struggles for fear of judgment. When they seek the Lord's help and permission is given to share about tough issues, the Holy Spirit is faithful to lead each individual to healing. When people receive healing, they are able to pass healing along to others.
