Whether you are skeptical or curious about faith in Jesus, are a new believer, or have been walking with Christ for years, we are glad that you are here.
We are a community-oriented, family-friendly church for every age and stage of life. We strive to be a caring church that honors God and lives out the message of the Bible. The church is not a building; it’s God’s people. We are not perfect. Every one of us has challenges, problems, and sin. This is why we gather together to follow Jesus, to worship God, to pursue the Christian life, and to be more like Christ. We care deeply about encouraging everyone to know and follow Jesus every day and in every way.

Three ways we help people know and follow Jesus:
Each week we gather as a body of believers for worship, fellowship, and teaching from God’s Word, the Bible.
We are purposeful about gathering in smaller groups for deeper relationships, encouragement, and spiritual growth.
We encourage and equip everyone to have a daily time with God and to love others through serving.
Committed to God’s Word – So we teach from the Bible.
Called to Spiritual Growth – So we provide Bible studies, life groups, and other growth opportunities.
Craving to Serve – So we serve both inside and outside the church.
Commissioned to All – So we are deeply involved with our community and missions around the world.
The Bible is actually God’s Word. It’s God’s revealed plan to us and all of humanity. The Bible is inspired by the Holy Spirit, written down by the first followers of Jesus, and is just as relevant today as when first written. The Bible is accurate, true, and reliable for every aspect of life.
There is one true God, three in person (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit), one in essence. God is perfectly holy and good. He is the creator of all things.
Jesus Christ is the Son of God who willingly stepped out of heaven, was born as a baby, and lived a perfect life. He is fully God and fully man. He willingly died on the cross for sin, rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and sits at the right hand of God the Father. He is our Savior, Redeemer, and Friend.
The Holy Spirit dwells in the life of the believer enabling and empowering each to be more like Jesus every day.
Salvation comes through faith in Jesus Christ. Each person is sinful and needs God’s forgiveness and mercy. Jesus died on the cross to pay for the sin of the world and to secure our salvation. When we repent of our sin and trust in Jesus, we accept Jesus’ payment for our sin and we experience “new life.”
The Church is the body of Christ. When a person puts their faith in Christ they are adopted by God into his family and become part of his church. The Church has the responsibility of helping other people to know Jesus and follow Him every day and in every way.
