Who We Are...

We are a family of believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, of all ages and many backgrounds, seeking to honor Him through God glorifying worship and gospel-centered lives; the gospel, is the good news that God has sent His Son into the world to redeem a people for Himself by the death and resurrection of His Son.    

As a fellowship of Christian believers, we seek to love God and love our neighbors.  We do this as we grow together in the “grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (2 Peter 3:18).  We are devoted to biblical preaching and Bible study, gathering together for joyful fellowship and prayer, the nurturing of our men and women, boys and girls, and in taking the love of God and the gospel of Jesus Christ to our neighbors and the world.
