The community we call Paradise is a family of local ministries spread literally around the world. From Baltimore to Towson, Maryland and from Kisumu to Migori or Kibera in Kenya, God has knit us together to live and share the grace and truth of Jesus' love. From our inner city youth expression called "G.E.M. Program" to our school in Kenya providing education, meals, and wraparound care, we believe love is a verb and if followers of Jesus are known for doing one thing well, it should be love. Beyond that, let's not make it more complicated.

A Note From Pastor Tally Wilgis
My name is Tally - pronounced Tall-E but if you get close, I'll count it. The best thing about me is that I'm blessed to claim Kristy, Caleb, and Ainsley as my family.
My story began in...
"Today you will be with me in paradise."
Nothing of eternal importance happens apart from prayer. We are passionate about seeking God for our next steps.
The bible is God’s revealed will for all of God’s children and we hold it to be the final arbiter in matters of faith. In all discussions of scripture we most value love.
The Gospel is the good news that every person can have new life by trusting in the perfect life, atoning death, burial, and bodily resurrection of Jesus to save us from sin. This is the good news.
Modeling a generous and gracious God, we are a generous church. We seek to honor God in being generous stewards of all He places into our hands.
We are a church of diverse people who are unified by our common dependence on Jesus and salvation in His name. We focus most on what unites us.
We seek to honor God by doing everything as though we are doing it to Him, through Him, and for Him. Perfection is elusive but excellence is our expectation.
