Pastor Myron Wells and Donna WellsShortly after Myron Wells arrived as Senior Pastor he asked the church to prayerfully consider hiring a young pastor with a heart to reach the youth in Yucca Valley. After much prayer and consideration God brought Mark Thometz to us to be that pastor in June of 2012. Since that time Mark and his wife Alexa have faithfully served the Lord and this church. After Myron retired and moved into an Associate Pastor role at the church, Mark took over as Lead Pastor in March of 2015. He graduated from Boise Bible College with an Associate of Arts in Biblical Studies and Bachelor of Science in Christian Ministry/Preaching. Mark has always had a heart for the lost and hurting in this world and continues to seek out ways to share the message of hope and forgiveness in new and compelling ways. God has blessed Mark with a gift to preach powerfully the Word of God and both he and Alexa emulate God’s love to all people.

Mark has said, “I know I’m young but I also know God has worked powerfully in the past and in today’s world. I know God can use me to grow His Kingdom and this church by His power and strength. I give God all the glory for everything He does through me.” He and Alexa just had their first child in December of 2014. Mark says he is most thankful for his incredible wife who gives him the strength to keep up God’s work at this church.

Mark’s influential sermons are delivered with easy to understand language, humor and power. If you are looking for a Jesus based church of love, mercy, grace and willingness to accept anyone and a Pastor who will lead by example and lovingly welcome all, we invite you to worship with us and see for yourself the powerful things God is doing at this church.

I hope that all who come to our church will experience Christ’s love in a new and profound ways and find a church that is open and honest with all, willing to answer any question you might have about God, the Bible and what it means to accept Christ.

May God bless you abundantly,
Pastor Mark Thometz

The BibleWe believe the Bible to be the inspired, the only infallible, authoritative Word of God and inerrant in the original writings. We believe that there is one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.

We believe that the lost and sinful people must be saved, and that our only hope of redemption is through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We believe that we enter into a saved relationship with Christ by responding with faith (Romans 5:1,2); repentance (Acts 17:30,31); confession of faith in Christ Jesus (Romans 10:9,10) and baptism by immersion into Christ. (Acts 22:16; 1 Peter 3:21) Water baptism signifies the believer's death, burial and resurrection into new life with Christ Jesus. (Romans 6:1-5) We also practice the weekly celebration of Holy Communion.

We believe in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, by whose indwelling Presence the Christian is enabled to live a Godly life. We believe in the resurrection of both the saved and the unsaved; those that are saved into the resurrection of life and those that are unsaved into the resurrection of damnation.

We believe in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.

We believe that we, the Church, have been given the assignment of sharing the good news of Jesus Christ and the salvation He offers, not only to our friends and neighbors, but around the world.  Therefore our Vision and Mission statements are:

Our Vision: “Reaching our world for Jesus Christ one person at a time.” Matthew   28:18-20

Our Mission: “Making disciples of Jesus Christ through relationships.” Acts 2:42-47

Our Process: “Developing disciples through SCMD.”

S - We will SHARE Christ with a dying world; making disciples of all nations.
1 Peter 2:9

C - We will CONNECT disciples into a leader-directed small group.

M - In small groups we will train disciples to MINISTER in the church and in the world.
Ephesians 4:11-12

D - We will release those who have been developed to DISCIPLE others.
Matthew 28:19-20
