About Hidden Treasures Ministries

Hidden Treasures Ministries started out as a home-based ministry, the vision was birthed in April of 2006 at Pastor Riley's Kitchen table when she started a discipleship bible-study class with one student, now she is teaching the command of the "Great Commission". To Go and Make Disciples of all Nations teaching them and baptizing them in the name of the Father, The Son, & The Holy Spirit.

We believe that the church is strengthened when we follow the Lords mandate of making disciples, and in order to make disciples  we must do as Ephesians 4:11-12 states to prepare Gods people for works of service, and that's our mission to equip the saints of God!

Our purpose is stated in Colossians 1:28, So we preach Christ to everyone, with all possible wisdom we warn and teach them in order to bring each one into God's presence as a mature individual in union with Christ.

Hidden Treasures Ministries is a non-denominational ministry, we believe that Jesus is the Son of God and through Him we receive salvation.
