Our Mission Statement:  Gather, Grow, Give, Go

Our church exists to fulfill the mission and vision stated above.


We Gather together to worship God. We Grow by spending time with God, hearing His Word taught and studying it with His people. When we grow, we become spiritually mature. Spiritual maturity leads us to Give, loving those who are far from God through fellowship and ministry. Fellowship demonstrates love, as believers seek to help one another grow in God's love. Ministry takes place when we give to meet people's needs, which shows them God's love. We Go by sharing the hope of Jesus through ministry and evangelism. As ministry meets people's needs, it opens the door for sharing the good news of the gospel.


Spiritual maturity is evident when Believers Gather, Grow, Give, and Go. These four activities show we are fully participating in the Gospel.
