If you aren’t living on the Edge you are taking up too much room! If you are tired of the humdrum traditional church where the traditions of men make the Word of God of non-effect then we invite you to join us. We endeavor to make the Word of God relevant to your life so you can be on the cutting Edge of what God is doing throughout the earth. We minister the Word of God line upon line, precept upon precept, here a little there a little.
