To be the hands and feet of Jesus by fulfilling the Great Commission given by Jesus Christ.
“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”
Our vision is to be a spirit filled community of believers who train, equip, and send disciples to share the love of Jesus Christ to our local community and the world.
“My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.”
We gather weekly to worship together and grow closer with God and expand His Kingdom.
“We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.”
1 John 1:3
