Who We Are


Who We Are

Mending Hearts Kingdom Church formerly, Mending Hearts Community Worship Ministries was birthed in June of 2012.  The name Mending Hearts was first established as our professional family counseling ministry which began in 2010.  When we answered the call to launch the church, we felt impressed to keep the name Mending Hearts. We have a passion and zeal to help heal the lost and hurting. At Mending Hearts, you will find real people who share in one another’s hurts, pains, frustrations, and tears.  But we also rejoice in our brothers and sisters’ joy, laughter and celebrations.

Mending Hearts is a non-denominational, non-traditional community of compassionate believers who absolutely love God. We are imperfect and make mistakes but are growing and learning daily as it is our desire is to see others come to know and experience the love of Jesus Christ.  God commissioned us to reach the community with love and Kindness – Jeremiah 31:3 “…I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with unfailing kindness”

At Mending Hearts, we believe in the operation of the 5-fold ministry gifts according to Eph. 4:11 (prophets, apostles, pastors, teachers, evangelists) for the equipping of the church. Our priority is to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth. There is an expectation for a free flow of the Holy Spirit including but not limited to the operation of spiritual gifts, prophesy, healing, deliverance, interpretation of tongues, prophetic dance, the song of the Lord and more.  Mending Hearts is a training and equipping center, a house of prayer, safety and rest.

Mending Hearts is a Kingdom focused church moving “beyond the walls”.  We believe there are many who may not come to our church building but who desire to worship and grow in God just the same.  We endeavor to establish small house churches where friends and families can meet, encourage, and hold one another accountable for spiritual growth and development.

We desire at Mending Hearts to radically bridge the gap between the generations through mentoring, cross-generational worship, fellowship, and evangelism experiences as well as ongoing dialogue about change, truth, loyalty, commitment and more.

The Mending Hearts Experience and encounter with God is truly unusual.  It’s SUPERNATURAL!!

With heartfelt love,

Pastor Arnell and Danita Thompson

Core Values

We believe that by holding fast to our core values it helps us guide our behavior, judgments and how we accomplish the mission of Mending Hearts Kingdom Church.

Pure Worship

But the hour is coming, and is now, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for the Father is seeking such to worship Him.  God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth (John 4: 23-24).

At Mending Hearts, we believe in maintaining a worship culture – worshiping God in spirit with a pure open and repentant heart and in the truth that is contained in the word.  We offer ourselves before God, according to Romans 12:1 a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God.  This is our true and proper worship.

Pure Word

“Man shall not live on bread alone but every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4).

We refuse to compromise the pure word of God.  God’s word creates, convicts, converts and conforms us.  It is our sustainer and salvation.  Our desire is to present the gospel accurately, clearly, practically and applicably.

Pure Love

“A new command I give to you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another” (John 13: 34-35).

We are developing a Christian community- the Koinonia where people love one another as Christ loves the church. At Mending Hearts, we bear one another’s burdens, build each other up, and share in each other’s joys.

Pure Fellowship

They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer (Acts 2:42).

Vital to our church growth is sharing in the lives of other believers and cultivating healthy relationships.  We believe Christians should have fun! The cheerful heart has a continual feast (Prov. 15:15).

Whether it’s the ocean, the mountains, a picnic in the park, bowling, skating, a movie or game night we share, joy and laughter with our fellow Christian friends.
