WHY WE EXIST


We exist for a ton of many different reasons. We would like to share a few with you below. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us. Thanks so much!


We believe that God has a very specific plan for us.  God will bless us beyond our imaginations as we follow the Lord's plan.  In fact, God already has!


  • To worship our Lord. God looks out for us 24/7/365. It is right to give him thanks and praise.

  • To reach the lost and broken.

  • To serve in our local communities. Just about every community has people who need help. We exist to reach those people.

  • To bring hope and love to the people in our area. We want them to know that they are not alone, and there is someone who wants to help.

  • To reach the unchurched. We understand we are a part of a larger body. We want to do our part to grow the kindgom of God.


MISSION & VISION

FOCUS ON THE WORD

The Bible is the blueprint on how we should live our lives. We strongly believe that if we follow the Word that we will grow stronger as a community, and close to God. We rely heavily on what the Bible says so that we may not stray from the path that God has set before us.

FOCUS ON GOD

God is with us 24/7/365.  It is our duty and our delight as disciples of Christ to put God first in our lives and to love God and our neighbor. Yes, we all fall short of the glory of God, but as God's servants we pray and work everyday not as we ought, but as we are able.

FOCUS ON EACH OTHER

As we love one another we grow stronger as a community of believers. We know that engaging in fellowship is a very important tool that God calls for us to do as often as possible. God blesses us as we extend grace to the lost and broken in Christ's name.



WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate, fully God and fully man, that He was conceived and born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, and sacrificed Himself to be punished in substitution for sinners. By the blood of His cross and His resurrection from the dead, He obtained for us eternal redemption, the forgiveness of sins, and life everlasting. He was raised bodily and ascended to the right hand of the Father. He will return to the earth personally and visibly to consummate His kingdom.
