We are on a mission to follow Jesus' example, share his love with everyone, and teach others to follow Him. We hope you will come to worship with us! Our prayer is that you’ll experience the presence of God and the love of Christ during your time here and that there will be a desire in your heart to reciprocate His love.
We believe that Following Jesus is a command (Matt. 4:19) and also the only way to Eternal Life (John 14:6). Jesus is the Creator of all life and therefore worthy of our devotion (Col. 1:15-20). Following Jesus means that we make Him the center of all our pursuits (Matt. 16:24-26), be willing to suffer for doing good (Matt. 5:11-12), and wait for His Second Coming (Rev. 22:20).
We believe that Jesus commands us to love others (John 13:34-45). God is love and those that follow him are called to love just as He has loved us (1 John 4:16). Love motivates us to take care of those in need, encourage fellow Christians, and share the Good News of Jesus Christ with those that do not believe (Heb. 3:13, Rom. 10:14-15).
We believe Jesus commands us to make Disciples of all nations (Matt. 28:18-20). We use the Bible to teach, rebuke, correct, and train Christians so we may be equipped for the work God has for us (2 Tim. 3:16-17, Eph. 3:10). We believe that disciples are instructed to grow and make disciples who then go and make more disciples (2 Tim. 2:2).
