About this Church

OUR MISSION​: “Practicing the Way of Jesus Together.”

We believe that following Jesus is about much more than a one-time decision. It is a way of life lived out through the power of the Holy Spirit. 1 John 2:5-6 says, “By this we may know that we are in him: whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked.” This type of life requires both practice and practices. You don’t accidentally become a disciple, and you don’t become like Jesus overnight. The Christian life was never meant to be lived on your own, but with a community of believers. This is why our mission is “Practicing the Way of Jesus Together.”
