Ministry Overview: Dr. David J. Niquette, Teaching Pastor


  • “I am a child of the living God! My heavenly Father is the Most High Sovereign of the universe, above time, before all things, and Ruler for Eternity — and He knows me! He chose me! He loves me! He always has! And always will!
  • His Son, Jesus, is my Friend. He is my King who has my love and loyalty. He gives me identity and purpose.
  • I am indwelt by the Holy Spirit of God, my strength, my advocate, Who speaks God’s truth to me faithfully. In Him I have all I need to survive and excel.
  • I am secure forever in my identity as a child of this living, loving, triune God.
  • Because Jesus died for me, conquered death for me, forgives me, and indwells me, therefore, Jesus defines me! I know who I am. And all that I am is a gift of His grace through simply believing and responding to His love.
  • As my God gives me the strength and grace, I will stand in this precious identity without fear, and without compromise, with victory in life assured now and forever. Truly, I live, and move, and have my being in Him.”
  • One more thing. We have a shared identity as the body of Christ, a holy nation, a royal priesthood, the Bride of Christ. We are not alone. We belong to Him, and to each other.
