We are reaching out to people locally, nationally and internationally by serving, loving, caring and sharing the gospel.


The Peninsula Healing Rooms of Virginia are for anyone seeking healing prayer and ministry (not counseling services).


Small groups create a setting for meeting people, building relationships, and growing together in a community / family friendly setting. Spending time in a small group often leads to a sense of belonging where people can encourage and help each other.

Behold, Believe, Belong,

Become, Behalf.

These five words represent our Values. They also describe a process where our religious faith is made relevant and impactful to our culture and the society we live in.

We believe that as people BEHOLD God their faith will grow and they will BELIEVE in Him in a greater measure. As they continue to BEHOLD Him and BELIEVE in Him, they will come to the realization that they BELONG with Him and with other people. God and mankind are deeply linked together and BELONG together, in relationship and community. As people are transformed from BEHOLDING God, BELIEVING in Him, growing in greater relational BELONGING, they are transformed and BECOME more like Him. As they BECOME more like Him, they become empowered to act in His BEHALF and demonstrate his love to others, even if the others are different than they are.
