"Why the name INNERSTATE"?

We Believe God is not directly focused on how you look on the outside. He's doesn't love a future more "together" version of yourself.  He's not even worried about your clothing, Hair, or style.

His main concern is your Heart.  He wants to have a RELATIONSHIP with YOU. We as a church hold tight to the name INNERstate Church.  We know God is more concerned about this inward state of a person.

But the Lord said to Samuel, “Don’t judge by his appearance or height, for I have rejected him. The Lord doesn’t see things the way you see them. People judge by outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
1 Samuel 16:7 (NLT)
