We believe God has been leading us to increase our capacity and our influence to receive and reach more people throughout our community and the world with the gospel of grace. Part of fulfilling this calling has us, as a church, in a multi-stage building initiative that began in the fall of 2014. As of March of 2021, we have paid off $1 million of capital improvements at our current location and raised over $3.4 million towards phase one of the Chapel Hill facility.

Ground Breaking And Building Progress

Questions and Answers
We have compiled a list of common questions about our building campaign with answers. If your questions are not answered here we encourage you to email us in the office.
When we launched Increasing Our Capacity, we planned it in phases knowing it would take a long period of time. There would be people who wanted to participate, but were not financially able at the time of the launch, or who were not even a part of the church at the initial launch, but who would want to participate in our future plans. Increasing Our Capacity was a launching pad for our future. Yes, it was about fundraising for building space, but it was also to prepare us for new ministerial outreach. God always leads us into new endeavors. He is never static with us. The entire Bible reads of a going forth of the people of God. Increasing Our Influence is about extending our faith to believe that the Lord wants to give us greater influence as a church. This phase still includes finances, but it’s also about the ministries that the Lord has awaiting us in our new space.
Our architects provided the following sketches of what the new building will look like.
Prophetic Words Given to Our Church
- “We are a place of influence, a place of sending out, a place of teaching, a place of prophecy, a place of encouragement, a place of great generosity, a place of spiritual intensity, a place of prayer and fasting. Out of this house will go those who are sent to ignite this city and beyond.” — 1983
- “God wants this house to be a place of refuge for the oppressed. They’re going to come here hurt, bruised, and dying. We will say, ‘We will restore them. We will restore their lives. They will become like gold.’” — 1984
- “A voice will go forth from this house, and it will shoot out many arrows. Everywhere the arrows land there will be an igniting of flame. Then the flame shall burn in that city.” — 1988
