The Promise is an online church community. A social media church. A church with out walls, or borders.MATTHEW 18:20 – FOR WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED IN MY NAME, THERE AM I IN THE MIDST OF THEM. ** We are all Christians despite our Denominations. Everyone can come here and uplift Christ Online.

Matthew 26:39 - And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt…
