“No day is neutral. Be busy killing sin by the Spirit, or sin will be busy killing you.” There is great comfort that our sins have been paid for by Jesus on the cross, yet we will battle daily with sin. But there is also great comfort that Jesus did not leave us without hope. We have the Spirit of God living in us, the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead that will also help us kill sin (Rom. 8:11). Sam preached last Sunday on putting sin to death by the power of the Spirit. This is easier said than done, but it can be done by the Spirit who indwells believers. So take heart. Jesus has overcome the world, and we too can overcome sin. But we must put sin to death by walking in obedience to God’s Word. Then the Spirit will give us victory.

May 30TH

We believe baptism is a joyful response to the command of Christ and symbolizes our death to sin and resurrection to new life. So it is the delightful duty of all believers upon their profession of faith as a way of going public with their identity in Christ. So if you have not been baptized as a believer, we encourage you to consider being baptized on May 30th. If you are interested, click on the button below and fill out the contact form and we will follow up with you.

Life is full of things to be discouraged about, and it can be overwhelming. We believe that Jesus offers real help, hope, and healing in the difficulties of life. We believe that the power of God’s Word and Spirit offers hope of life change from the inside out. So we offer biblical counseling to those needing the comfort and wisdom of Scripture. While we believe God can work through various methods of counseling, our lead counselor is certified through the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC). We also have pastors and other counselors who have received training from Faith Biblical Counseling, and are able and willing to counsel according to the Scriptures.

If you would like to explore meeting with one of our counselors, please fill out the contact form by clicking on the button below and we will try to match you with someone.


We recently re-launched Sunday Prayer Teams. These are KCC people who are ready and eager to pray for people as a part of the KCC worship gathering. Some people think that only major crises of life are worth praying for, but the truth is that everyone needs prayer for something. James 4:2 says that we do not have because we do not ask, and when we do we often have false or impure motives. But the first step is to ask. So please come and let us pray for you in person at our Sunday worship gathering. Or, if you would like prayer now, just click the button below and fill out the form and we will pray for you.
