Our Purpose

Our purpose is to worship God, proclaim the joy of the Gospel, and build mature followers of Jesus Christ.

Our vision is to fulfill the Great Commission by seeking the lost, and growing mature, joyful followers of Jesus Christ.

We desire that everyone be grounded in God's grace, know and reflect God's Word, and equipped to minister to each other, the community, and the world through their spiritual gifts.

We accomplish all of the above through our Sunday School, Youth Group, Bible Studies, Outreach Events, Mission Support, and our regular Worship and Preaching.
