It’s not by accident that we have the joy of meeting you. So, above all else we want to express Christ’s love to you with genuine, heart felt warmness. We’re eager to know you, and we’re excited to share with you the marvelous ways God is working in this church.
The primary reason we meet together is to focus our attention on God, giving Him our worship and receiving His blessing and inspiration. Each time we come together is an opportunity for spiritual refreshment.
To us the Bible is vital because it not only instructs us intellectually but also guides us spiritually. We believe it and accept it as God’s Word, a Book that is alive and relevant to life today. Learning its truths is a thrilling adventure.
Just as Jesus Christ came “not to be ministered unto, but to minister” we accept our responsibility to reach out in service to others. This applies both within the church family and outside our fellowship.
It won’t take you long to discover that this is truly a family, rich in the relationships that matter most. Growing together, we worship, we serve, we laugh, we cry, we learn, and we reach out to our world with life changing truths. Our doors are open. Our hearts are open too. If you’ve been thinking, praying, searching and hoping for a place to belong, we say again, “WELCOME!”
