Our Mission & Vision

Our Mission:

We are a church that is LIVING for Jesus and LEARNING His ways, so that we can be LOVING the world as He does and be LEADING all people to Him. If you’re looking for a family to love and accept you, we invite you to come join us.

Leadership Team:

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
