About us 

Who We Are

We're so glad you're thinking of visiting us. We are made up of people from all walks of life, backgrounds, and ages – but more importantly, we’re a family! We strive to live out our faith in Jesus by loving God and others, being generous with our time and resources, seeking justice for the vulnerable, and living life together as a community of believers. Our desire is to create an environment where everyone can come and find acceptance, discover their purpose in life, be equipped to grow spiritually, serve others and make a lasting difference in our world.


We believe that the greatest thing we can do for those in our community is to lead them to a relationship with Jesus. In turn, we think they will passionately share this experience with orders so that they may be blessed by a similar encounter. Over the years, this philosophy has led us to adopt a simple vision for our church body.
