A welcoming congregation

We are a group of ordinary people who love being with each other.  We built a large light-filled lobby specifically for the purpose of encouraging connections, so newcomers and old-timers can easily meet new people.

A diverse congregation

Our congregation is diverse in age and ethnicity.   We are thankful for the growing number of young families, young people, and adults from all walks of life that make up our congregation.

A congregation that is a community

We are more than a group of people who meet on Sunday. Through the natural connections people build, and through our fellowships, LIFE Groups, and service ministries, those who are part of our church soon find themselves with genuine, lifelong relationships.

An evangelical congregation

We love scripture and hold to it as the sole source of our faith and ministry in Jesus Christ.  We are convinced it teaches that faith in Christ’s atoning death is the only way to have a restored relationship with God, and for His Spirit to indwell us.   This is the core of what we preach and teach.   

A congregation with a love for the manifest working of the Holy Spirit

We genuinely desire to see the manifest working of the Holy Spirit in our congregation.  Through a strong foundation of prayer we see His supernatural gifts, His transforming grace in our character, His call to mission, and joy-filled worship at work in our church.

A people with a desire to make a difference

We are pumped about how many of our congregants have being used by God around the world!  We are also thrilled with how many of our people, and our programs, are being used locally to touch lives in our community.  And we have only just begun to make a difference.
