About Us 2017-09-28T16:29:24+00:00


We are a vibrant, growing church overwhelmed with a passion for the next generation and seeing God’s kingdom grow.

Our Mission is to be a place where you can find Purpose, Hope & Belonging in Jesus Christ.

We believe people should faithfully attend the worship service, get involved in a small group, and use their gifts to impact the community.

Our vision is to be a church the next generation loves to attend.

We want to be a church that faithfully passes on the baton to the younger generation. Our goal is to see young lives transformed while growing in their faith and building leaders.
