Our church community is made up of people of all ages and from all walks of life. We define our mission in three words: KNOWING, GROWING and GOING.
Our first priority is to KNOW God - not just knowing things about him, but following him in a life-giving relationship and experiencing his empowering presence. God wants us to GROW in our faith, and he wants us to grow together as a church community. Both happen as we love and serve one another with the gifts he gives us. Becoming a disciple of Jesus changes our relationship with the world. God calls us to join him in his mission to GO and reach every person with the good news that Jesus is now King. Just as Jesus was sent into the world, he now sends us.
