Our Building Will Be PAID FOR in 2018!

It seems like only yesterday that we built our first building here on 8.5 acres in North Durham. We did much of the construction and hard work ourselves to keep our costs down, and were amazed at how God provided in answer to prayer at just the right moment.

Now, scarcely nine years later, we’ve seen how God has been faithful yet again. By the end of December this year, we are on track to COMPLETELY RETIRE OUR MORTGAGE.  We’ve also been able to do this while helping plant other churches. God has blessed us, and we are deeply grateful!

Having no building debt is HUGE. This will enable us to continue to develop new ways for reaching our community with the life-changing message of Jesus–like we’re now doing through our children’s ministry which is new this year, and growing!

A church is so much more than a building–and not having a mortgage helps us stay focused on the things that matter most. God answers prayer, and we praise Him for His faithfulness! Please pray He will continue to bless us as we take new steps in faith!

We asked. They answered.

We recently asked some of the people who worship here what being a part of our church family means to them.  Here’s how they responded…

“This wonderful, sweet church brings exactly what its name implies.  I receive Jesus’ peace and direct message to my life every Sunday.”

“Peace Church takes me totally as I am—unconditionally.”

 “When you walk up to the cross on our prayer path, you can feel Jesus’ presence.”

“This is a church that really prays for me and my family.”

 “I don’t know why the Lord led me here, but I’m so glad He did!”

God is at work here in beautiful ways.  Many who visit here for the first time tell us they sense something different as soon as they walk in the door.  We have been deeply blessed, but these are blessings we can’t keep to ourselves.  We hope you’ll come share them with us this Sunday!

Our pastor (Dr. James Banks) was recently interviewed by Daniel Henderson and the 6:4 Fellowship about what it means to pray the Bible’s prayers (the subject of his newest book).  Here’s what he had to say:

Prayer is one of the beautiful things God is doing at our church.
