Visiting a new church can be a little scary and overwhelming. We invite you to explore the options below to make your visit something to look forward to.
We are here because of the good news of Jesus Christ.
We are sinners who have been rescued from sin by Jesus Christ. Though we have different backgrounds, ethnicities, opinions, and personalities, we find commonality in the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
We gather each week to worship the one true God revealed in the Bible. We're grateful for the privilege He has given us to worship, live, and serve in our local community.
We rely on God's grace to give us true unity to function together as one body in Jesus Christ, submitted to the Word of God and committed to living that Word out in our daily lives.

In obedience to The Lord (Mat. 28:19,20) we labor to share the Gospel (1 Cor. 15:3,4) with our community, our country, and the world by way of local and foreign missionaries.
Our Philosophy of Growth
In an effort to develop God’s people, we purposefully mentor and disciple God’s people according to biblical truth and principles as well as providing opportunities to serve The Lord locally and abroad.
What to Expect
We’ve created this section of our website to give you an idea of who we are and to help make your visit with us a pleasant experience.
We know that choosing a home church is an important decision which can be difficult. You may be looking for a place to develop life-long friendships and relationships, or for Biblically-based messages addressing issues relevant to concerns in your life, or maybe you are looking for a church that has ministries for everyone in your family.
Whatever your purpose, we believe we can be an encouragement to you and your family no matter where you are in life’s journey. If you are looking for a church family, we warmly invite you to join us for one of our services. We would love to have the opportunity to meet you and get acquainted.

What We Believe
Our Philosophy of Ministry
We seek to be Word-driven and Christ-centered.
The Word of God governs our life, and we believe the Bible points to Jesus Christ. The Bible is God's written Word — His communication to us of who He is, what He does, and what He expects of us. The Bible alone holds the authoritative answers to the questions of life and eternity. The written Word is a reflection of the Living Word, Jesus Christ. It is our reliable, sufficient rule for faith and practice.
We seek to be timeless in our message.
Because we believe the gospel is central and that our church life should be governed by the Word of God, we practice expository, Christ-centered preaching. We strive to make our message accessible to everyone, while still preaching the full counsel of God. Our message is Jesus Christ and Him crucified. We seek to share this message compassionately with the hurting to make a difference in our community, while also engaging in committed missions efforts throughout the world.
We seek to be relevant in our vision.
We believe that the Bible is relevant and contains everything we need to face the problems of life today. We are ordinary people who submit to the work of God in our hearts to change us to become more like His Son, Jesus. We desire to change, not because we thereby gain favor with God, but because we desire to grow in our love for Him.
