We are a gathering of excited, compassionate people who desire to connect with others right where they are, because that is exactly what Jesus did. We have a love filled church environment with powerful worship, practical teaching and a strong relational base that prepares us to go out each day, ready to impact our culture.

Our Vision

Demonstrating God's Kingdom in our everday lives

Our Mission

To populate the earth with mature ambassadors for Christ


Advancing God's Kingdom Ministries (AGK) was founded in the living room of Pastors Mark & Jackie Baldwin home. Through prayer we decided to go a different direction and launch out into Advancing God's Kingdom in another location. Our heart is to teach, train and equip so that others can demonstrate. First, we began to meet at the Ramada Inn for a few years saving money and waiting on God to transition us into our next place. While seeking the Lord it was impressed in Pastor Mark's heart that we would be in a strip mall verus a traditional church building. Pastor Mark begin to seek different places in town before a member connected us with a local realtor who took us to a location that she felt would meet our needs. That location was a "good fit" for us, but the next location was home sweet home, and is where AGK. currently resides.
