Who We Are

We are a family community of Bible believing Christ followers living out the biblical one-anothers: encouraging, comforting, praying, supporting, loving, and caring.

Our local church community encompasses a great mixture of young and older believers. We are a diverse congregation of single, married, and both small and large families.

We hold to the inspired and infallible word of God that is profitable for teaching, reproof, correction, training in righteousness; so that every believer may be adequate, equipped for every good work (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
