Our church started around 50 years ago in the Spokane Valley by people who were loving God & serving people. We have the same purpose today. Craig & Cyndi Langhans have been the lead pastors since 1986. We are connected with 75,000 other churches world wide known as The Foursquare Church.
…helping people become fully devoted followers of Christ
…to be irresistible for people who aren't here yet
Connect people to God and others; help them Grow with God and others; and to help them Serve God by serving others (Matthew 4:19)
We always work in a team. It’s the Jesus way to live life. Everyone’s responsibility looks different, but everyone is equally important. All of these teams work in harmony with each other to accomplish the mission and vision.

WHAT WE BELIEVE
The following are statements we believe are essential to our faith.
We believe God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The three are coequal and are one God. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God who became human to reveal God to humanity and to become the Savior of the lost world. The Holy Spirit lives in each Christian providing them with power for living, understanding of spiritual truth, and guidance in doing what is right as we let Him lead our daily lives.

About The Bible
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God and that people were moved by the Spirit of God to write the very words of Scripture. Therefore, we believe the Bible is without error and the foundation to following Jesus.
2 Timothy 3:16-17; Hebrews 4:12
We believe we can never make up for our sin by self-improvement or good works. We believe that the blood of Jesus Christ, shed on the cross, provides the sole basis for the forgiveness of sin. He offers the free gift of eternal life to all who believe in him and follow him.
