When we started the ministries of Legacy Faith Church (previously Church Without Walls), the Lord spoke to me saying “Philip, don’t build big ministry; build big people."

As a spiritual being created in the image and likeness of God, you are the only form of creation that can receive and exercise FAITH. The scriptures teach us that FAITH only comes one way; by hearing the WORD of God!


It is our utmost desire that you and your family learn to walk in God’s ways and daily experience His presence, power and provision. We pray that you discover the awesomeness of God and His love for you.

We have taken the time to build ministries that are equipped to inspire every age group from toddlers to seniors.
