We meet to discover the way of Jesus, to connect in community, and to explore together ways we can serve one another and others. Lastly, we are committed to true Biblical understanding that leads us to engage our minds, transform our lives, and respond in loving ways.
We love Jesus and desire to follow his teachings with authenticity. We are a close-knit community that is creative in nature and consider ourselves a safe place for asking questions about faith and life. We have a collaborative leadership team that shares the responsibility of serving the spiritual needs of all who attend our church. We are committed to true Biblical understanding that can help shape our lives and impact our society in practical, genuine and loving ways.
