Spiritual Practice
A spiritual practice is something we can do to help us live in and enjoy God's grace. We hope these practices will become a regular part of your life so that walking and talking with God is the most natural thing you do.

If you’ve never had a personal encounter with Jesus, we encourage you to ask questions and learn more. Email us at or call 864.688.8212. We’d love to talk with you about how a relationship with Jesus can change your life forever!
If you’re a follower of Jesus, spend time reflecting on the story of your salvation. Where were you when God first became real to you? What happened? Ask God to renew the joy of your salvation (Psalm 51:12) and empower you to live for Him with everything you have (Deuteronomy 6:4-5)!
Memory Verse
May you always be filled with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character produced in your life by Jesus Christ—for this will bring much glory and praise to God. Philippians 1:11 (NLT)
