We believe that as a church we are to be a light to our community. We are a place where the hurting come to get answers and leave with healing and hope. We believe that with the same measure of forgiveness we have been given, we also need to give out to others. We are the living, breathing representation of Jesus. We aren’t just a club of believers that look cute, but we are a people on a mission to make a difference in this life. We are a church where lives are changed, relationships restored & destinies are discovered. Click here to learn about our vision and doctrinal beliefs.
