Our Mission is:
To make disciples of Jesus Christ
for the transformation of the world to the glory of God.

Our Vision is to be:
A church of real people,
inviting everyone into a relationship with Jesus Christ
by intentionally living lives of faith, hope, and love
within our families, our congregation, community, and the world.

Our Core Commitments are:

  • I will practice prayer as a spiritual discipline
  • I will faithfully participate in worship
  • I will accept responsibility for my personal spiritual
      growth by actively participating in a small group

      (Sunday school, ongoing Bible study, etc.)
  • I will tithe or move towards tithing as a spiritual discipline
  • I will live as to inspire others through my Christian character
      and service
  • I will invite others to join me in growing in grace

We Believe:  

  • That Jesus Christ is the Son of God, the redeemer of the world.   (John 3:16)
  • We believe that the Holy Spirit is present for guidance, comfort, and strength for living our lives. (Acts 10:45)   **More on the Holy Spirit.
  • We believe that the Bible is the living Word of God.  (1 Peter 1:23)
  • We believe that God answers prayer (Philippians 4:6)
  • We believe that The Church is the fullest expression of the will, mission and heart of Christ and that each Christian is called to passionately participate in the church.
     (1 Corinthians 1:2 & 1 Peter 2:4-10)
  • We believe that every Christian is called to actively participate in their own faith development and that each Christian is called to live boldly for Jesus. (2 Timothy 2:15)
