Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is to change lives through deeper relationships with Jesus Christ! Let us take a minute and share with you how we do that. We believe that through worship we encounter God, connect as a community and get direction for our lives. We offer two styles of worship that provide Biblical teaching that is relates to our everyday lives.
Our contemporary servive at 8:45, called Praise 365 worships with christian comtemporary music in the Family Life Center. At 11 AM in the sanctuary we have our traditional service, singing hymns of praise, and reaffirming our faith in community prayer.

Leadership Team:

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 the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
