"To turn hearts and lives to Jesus Christ." Plain and simple. While God is the only one who can convert a heart, we believe that God invites us to work with Him in His plan to redeem humanity. At the end of each worship service everyone recites our mission, claiming it as a priority throughout the week. Our mission defines who we are and guides our life together as a church. We pray you will be a part of it as well.



Our vision is to be a place where all people are encouraged, enabled, and empowered to love God and to love their neighbor.
