Our mission is simple: Live, Love, Lead.
We believe that relationships are a vitally important faucet to every person’s life in which we can receive love, encouragement, and help by connecting through weekly interactions and get-togethers inside and outside of the church.
We love God first above all things, and we love people. We believe that people matter. It is the cry of our heart for all to know the authentic love of the Father.
Through teaching, training, and equipping believers in the Word of God and with the empowerment of the Holy Spirit we are able to have a dynamic impact in our community and the world.
