As Leaders and Disciples of Jesus Christ, led by the Holy Spirit, we share these core values through engaging in our Church’s ministries.
We are dedicated to inspiring disciples through Christ-focused worship that makes a spiritual connection with the worshipper. We value our reformed tradition approach to worship where preaching, liturgy and inspirational music focus our attention on the Sovereign God.
We are dedicated to developing disciples as a caring and compassionate community that opens their arms to welcome and embrace everyone who comes through our doors.
We are dedicated to making disciples through mission-based outreach that equips and provides opportunities for members to respond compassionately and generously to human need in our community, nation and the world.
We are dedicated to growing disciples through Bible based classes and small groups where all ages have the opportunity to explore the call to Discipleship…
We are dedicated to enfolding disciples into a fellowship that celebrates our life together in Christ. We place strong value on fellowship events that give us the opportunity to welcome and get to know each other.
