More about us


Welcome to the sanctuary

If I was asked to describe The Sanctuary, how would I describe it?

I would describe it like this:

The Sanctuary is a small Church congregation (or more accurately, a small loving family) with a strong desire in seeking a more intimate and deep relationship with God and to share it with others. We are focusing on God’s direction in all of our lives and as a church family; we do not want to miss a thing that He has for us. 

Our services are not focused on the entertainment value at all, but rather the depth value. Our goal is absolute unity in our worship, prayer, and fellowship. We strive to be very attentive to the prompting of the Holy Spirit and follow His direction. 


 We have open, loving and non-judgmental arms for all that enter, and all are welcome without exception. We want all that enter as guest to leave as family and know that they are in fact loved, as we are loved.

At The Sanctuary we believe in edifying one another with love and acceptance, and we do not shy away from the total written Word of God.

We as a church want to be like the Church of Acts in this day. We refuse to forget our first love.

Love to all…..<><
