Our church is located in Janesville, Wi and is an Assembly of God Church. We are a Bible believing church that embraces the Book of Acts. We believe that Christ is the Son of the Living God. We believe He died as an Atonement for our Sins. By His Resurrection we are overcomers and by His Stripes we are healed. We believe that Christ is coming again and that He will judge the quick and the dead.
What to Expect
What to expect – expect a warm greeting – a family atmosphere – and casual dress. If you come between 9AM and 10AM, you will also be able to enjoy a snack and coffee or tea while getting to meet the members of the church. The service consists of songs of praise and worship before the sermon and discussion groups afterwards. We embrace the gifts of the Spirit, which means that we lift our hands in praise, we might speak in tongues and we expect miracles to happen. We are dedicated to growth and transformation. We seek God’s presence not only in church, but in our everyday life. We hope you join us and allow Christ’s Spirit into your lives so you may feel the joy of the Lord and the peace that goes beyond understanding.
It Was a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Back in 1994, when Arsenio Hall’s late night talk show was winding down, an unlikely guest walked onto stage to an overwhelming standing ovation. The guest was Public Television’s Fred Rogers, creator of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood.
Very naturally, Mr. Rogers led the conversation in the direction of personal faith. Arsenio said something about how easy it would be to believe “If God still did big miracles, like in the Bible.”
“Arsenio,” Mr. Rogers replied, “God’s revealing evidence is everywhere, you just have to look for it.”
Fred Rogers, who died of stomach cancer , was a priceless nugget of God’s revealing evidence through his ongoing ministry to children. Ordained a Presbyterian minister in 1962, he was charged by the church to continue his work with children and families through the medium of television.
In an eloquent testimony to the power of simple storytelling, Mr. Rogers captured the hearts of millions of children – along with their grateful parents – over a long career that refused to compromise the good news of grace, unconditional love, and acceptance in a television market that too often relinquishes fundamental accountability in favor of ratings and profit.
Mr. Rogers recognized the disturbing capacity that television has to contribute to the values of impressionable children, especially in families where moral ambiguity leaves such lessons untaught and seldom considered. He harnessed that potential for good, delighting both the mind and the soul of his audiences.
We will miss you, Mr. Rogers. America needs clear voices such as yours to remind us of the rich heritage of faith from which our sense of morality was born. You taught millions of us that creativity, quality, principle, and substance are not incompatible with excellence in the challenging medium of television. It is a lesson that we need to learn every day.

Everly's Verse of Worship
What Is Love?
What is love? Well, I don’t know.
A friendship that takes time to grow.
It’s patient, kind, never jealous I found.
It’s really what makes the world go around.
We love our spouse, our house, our kids.
We love our lives and the things we did.
We love our friends both new and old.
Sun, rain, the weather – hot or cold.
With all these loves, we can’t forget
The one True love the best one yet.
Love for me hard to define
Except it’s Jesus the Lord divine.
