Our Mission

We seek to glorify God by making faithful disciples, through Knowing, Growing, Serving and Going.


We strive to create an environment where people can know God through a personal relationship, worship Him in spirit and in truth and experience the benefits of fellowship with other believers through church membership.


We purpose to facilitate a proper understanding of God’s word; an understanding that motivates believers to obey the truth, resulting in a change in behavior and a sense of belonging best lived out by actively participating in small group settings, faithful worship attendance and church activities.


Our hope is that every member be involved in a ministry in the church that serves others.


We desire that every member grow and commit to the sharing of their faith.
