Our Mission

Statement

“We are a community of people, compelled by the love of Jesus,
to offer to all people acceptance, compassion, forgiveness and a place to belong.” The best words to describe our church is found in our statement of mission. We are a community of people. The word community is rich in meaning and experience. We “do life together.” Regardless if a person has been attending one month or twenty years, it matters not. Community embraces everyone. It is a word that speaks to the enabling, encouraging, and companioning with one another through the ups and down of life. Compelled by the love of Jesus is at the heart of embracing on another. We believe every human being, without exception, is created in the image of God. Therefore, loved by God unconditionally. Throughout the entire Bible, God has revealed who He is and what He is truly like. He comes to where we are in the moment. He invites us, through His Son, Jesus, into relationship. 

Who We Are

Our Team & Leadership

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PASTOR

Over the years, the word “church” for many has become a building, a certain locality with a certain address, times of services etc. It is true, people of faith gather to worship and share in one another’s lives. However, the church as revealed in Holy Scripture is far more.

The best words to describe our church is found in our statement of mission. We are a community of people. The word community is rich in meaning and experience. We “do life together.” Regardless if a person has been attending one month or twenty years, it matters not. Community embraces everyone.

To offer to all people. The arms of God have always been opened wide. Division, segregation, disunity have never been a part of God’s reach nor is it in ours.

Acceptance, compassion, forgiveness and a place to belong is expressed in the most practical of terms. Belonging is one of the deepest needs we face.
