We are a congregation of believers in God as seen through Jesus Christ, of diverse backgrounds and opinions, dedicated to nurturing each other in our faith, helping each other grow spiritually, and welcoming all who join us. We proclaim the Gospel of Christ in word and deed and share His spirit in our church family, our community, and the world.
We believe communion of the Lord’s Supper should be offered whenever Christians gather for worship. All are invited who accept Jesus Christ as Lord.
Though we teach, preach and practice immersion baptism for those old enough to proclaim Christ as Lord, we accept persons from other denominations without requiring rebaptism.
We are committed to praise and worship; to the spiritual growth of all ages and groups; to joyful Christian fellowship; and to serving our community and the world in the name of Christ.
