ABOUT US

Together we are a community of believers. While we serve and play together you will find that we grow closer to God and one another. The bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. We believe that by studying the Bible together we grow stronger and will reach the world with God's love.  This is why our mission is to "Love God, Love People, Learn the Faith and Live the Faith".

 

Recognizing our privilege, opportunity, and responsibility as believers, our vision is to become a biblical community unified in purpose, dynamic in growth, and influential in the world, all for the glory of God.

 

Relationships with one another are highly valued here. We hope to lead you to grow through fellowship, and ultimately grow closer to God, by valuing the Word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. If you are lost or broken, please know that we look to extend grace to all and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.
