Our Mission & Vision

Our mission is simple:
We exist to glorify God by making disciples in our city and around the world. 
We are a church in transition from a season of decline towards one of Renewal. It’s a process of making sacrifices so we can reach the next generation of disciples and ensure this church is around for generations to come. We value the gospel and will continue to proclaim the good news of Jesus in this city and around the world. We value each other so not one age group is given priority or preference, but we work to include everyone, like a family should. We are excited about this next season of ministry and there is always room among us for you to join in.
Leadership Team: Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
