What We Hope to Be
Our vision is for us to experience the goodness of our Heavenly Father as we are transformed by the Spirit in our relationship with Jesus into a community of faith that can love and flourish.

Our mission is to become a people who mature in Christ, by becoming students of Jesus, living in spiritual community, and engaging the part of God’s plan of redemption that he assigns to us.

Our Statement of Faith
We believe in one God, the maker of heaven and earth, who exists eternally in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
We believe in the divinity of the Lord Jesus Christ, that he was born of a virgin, ministered in word and miracle, died for our sin, was raised bodily from the dead, ascended to God’s right hand and will personally return in power and glory.
We believe that the Holy Spirit is presently ministering in the world and through the church, empowering lives of godliness and service.
We believe that the Holy Bible is divinely inspired, trustworthy in all its teaching, and authoritative in all matters of faith and practice.
We believe that Jesus Christ established God’s kingdom and now calls His church on earth to carry out His saving mission among all people and formed her to be one holy and unified body;
We believe in God’s saving grace that leads people into the faith, repentance, confession, baptism, new life and ministry through the Spirit.
Because of these beliefs, we commit ourselves in heart, mind, and body to learn from Jesus how to live lives of integrity, truth, holiness, and love.
