Our Purpose

Our purpose, as believers, is to know Christ and to make Him known, abiding in a community of faith, hope, and love.The church is not bricks and mortar, or pews, or steeples.  The church is people:  from different walks of life, with diverse likes and dislikes, possessing a variety of talents.  We become the church – “the called out ones” – when we take what we are as individuals and dedicate it to our Lord, Jesus Christ.

Our Leadership:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for works of service until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
