About Us

Our Vision

We are a family of Christian disciples spiritually united - in the worship of God, in preparing people for ministry and in seeking the transformation of lives through Christ.

Our Core Values

We Believe:
  • We are created to be in relationship with God through His Son, Jesus Christ, as witnessed in our hearts by God's Holy Spirit.
  • Prayer is absolutely and divinely required if we are to be in relationship with God and to carry on His work.
  • We are called to be disciples of Jesus Christ.
  • We are commissioned to go out into the world and make disciples.
  • We are to welcome, value and love all people as God does, encouraging and nurturing them in the faith.
  • Showing Christ's mercy to those who are troubled or hurting fulfills His command to love one's neighbor as yourself.
  • God's love must be evidenced in every area of our lives.
  • The Bible is God's word and the basis for what we believe.
  • The Church, God's people united, is the living body of Christ and the symbol of God's presence on earth through which His purpose is accomplished.
