Mission Purpose Statement:
We are called by God to know Jesus through worship and discipleship. We seek to share the love of Jesus in our local community through welcome and outreach.
For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not die but have eternal life. John chapter 3 verse 16.
