Our vision:

Passionately Sharing Christ through Worship, Nurture, Missions, and Biblical Teachings


A Christ Centered Church Christ is the head of the church. In everything we do, we intend each ministry of our church to be Christ centered. Jesus Christ will be the focus of all our worship, projects, and activities. In our daily living we will seek Christ's guidance first. We read in Ephesians 3:20 that "Christ Jesus himself is the cornerstone." Jesus said to Peter, "You are the rock. Upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it." (Matthew 16:18)
   
A Welcoming Church Our God is a welcoming God. All are made in God's image, and God calls ALL to him. God's desire is for everyone to be in relationship with him. In his time on earth Jesus taught us this by welcoming everyone into his presence and into the Kingdom of God. As a church, our goal is to follow in Jesus' footsteps. We are called to be inviting and encouraging to others, as well as goodwill ambassadors for our Lord Jesus Christ. "Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." (Romans 15:7)
   
A Worshiping Church Worship is at the center of our faith and a core value of our church. We believe that God has called God's people to gather in worship to give God glory and praise. It is our hope to provide a variety of worship experiences. We proclaim that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior of all. We will seek to reach those who are a part of the family of God as well as those who are searching. We invite all to join us in worship to experience God's presence. "Worship the LORD with gladness; come into his presence with singing." (Psalm 100:2)
   
A Discipling Church

We believe in teaching, training, and making disciples for Jesus Christ. We will provide opportunities for all ages to be trained in biblical knowledge with life applications through Bible-based educational opportunities including, but not limited to, Sunday School and Wesley Fellowship Groups. As a discipling church, we envision a biblical imperative and will provide mentoring opportunities for growth in Christ centeredness. "And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God." (Romans 12:2)

   
A Missional Church One of the ways we strive to passionately share Christ is through MIssions. Missions are moments when we truly focus our attention on serving others for God. These missions can be in our neighborhoods, cities, states, territories, provinces, countries, or around the world. These mission moments are times when we intentionally strive to become "other-centered" and share Jesus as we, "do what is right to other people, love being kind to others, and live humbly, obeying our God" (Micah 6:8 NCV). Or as stated in the NIV "What does your Lord require of you? To act justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God."
   
A Praying Church Through prayer we are allowed to speak directly to God. We can pray alone, as a group, and as a congregation. Our prayers can be for each other, our church, our community, our country, and our world. In prayer we find wisdom, power, strength, and allow God to find us. The knowledge of God's love, the discernment of God's will, spiritual understanding, and boldness in sharing the faith are a result of prayer. There is not an issue we will face that prayer cannot address, because nothing is too difficult or impossible for God to handle. "The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective." (James 5:15)
