“We’re Debt Free!”

If you’ve ever listened to Dave Ramsey on the radio, you’ll notice he frequently has folks on the show who have just paid all of their bills. On the count of three, they shout in unison, “We’re debt free!” It’s an incredible accomplishment. And now, because of God’s amazing provision in answer to prayer, we’re able to say the same thing as a church.

It seems like only yesterday that we built our first building here on 8.5 acres in North Durham. Now, scarcely nine years later, God has enabled us to COMPLETELY RETIRE OUR MORTGAGE.  We’ve also been able to do this while helping plant other churches. We’ve been blessed, and we are grateful!

Having no building debt is HUGE. This enables us to continue to develop new ways for reaching others with the life-transforming message of Jesus–like we’re now doing through our new children’s ministry, which is 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 faithfulness!

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.
