Whoever you are and whatever your reason, we’re so excited meet you! We are men, women, plumbers, electricians, businessmen and women, students, teachers, motorcycle riders, athletes, artists, young and old. But most of all, we are a family – complete with all the quirks and fun that your own family might have – a big, imperfect family with a love for our huge perfect God!
“By every possible means we bring every person in our area of influence closer to Christ.”
This we believe … “God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
Questions about our core beliefs? Contact us.
The world around is constantly changing. That’s why our approach to ministry and our communication methods will change. Yet our message remains the same: Jesus has given us freedom from our sins. Jesus has called us to live as a family of believers loving God and loving each other. We will do everything we can to help people grow closer to Jesus and the freedom he gives.
We envision a congregation that …
We want everyone to know that because Jesus died and rose again, we have freedom from the sin and guilt taking power over our lives. Because of Jesus’ promises to us, we are free from the fear of the future.
Yet we also know that no one is perfect. Sometimes we need to be reminded of these promises of freedom supported in our faith. It’s why we gather for worship and Bible study each weekend. We know a strong faith comes from hearing God’s promises again and again.
