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.
New to our church and want to learn more?
We offer two small groups for those who have been attending our church for a year or less.
We offer ministries for your kids and students (newborn – college age) where they can learn and grow with others their age.
What can I expect?
Coming to a new church can be intimidating. What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go? We understand the many thoughts and concerns you may have, and we want you to feel as comfortable as possible!
