Our Pastors

Gabe Martin

Senior Pastor


I have been born again in Jesus Christ by the grace of God through the power of the Holy Spirit and now desire nothing other than to praise Him, proclaim Him and obey His commands in all circumstances. The Gospel is my life! My mission from God is to proclaim the Gospel through the preaching of His Word and to make disciples who will in turn seek to honor and glorify Christ through worship, love, godly living, and kingdom service. Through God’s leading, I left my position in the United States Navy to dedicate my life to the work of His Kingdom. My passion for evangelism, missions, and discipleship are directed toward the same goal of the apostle Paul, as he wrote:

“We proclaim Him [Christ], admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me.”

-Colossians 1:28-29

Everything I am is for His glory and honor and praise!
