What To Expect
Our worship is informal, spontaneous, and based on the Word of God. If you are searching for a group of people to accept you where you are and challenge you to grow in your selection of God’s love, then we extend a welcome to you! For those who call this home, we commit to pray, listen, forgive, and nurture. We invite you to be part of our church family and enjoy spiritual growth in worship and fellowship with our Heavenly Father.

Our Mission Statement
“Building the Family through Ministry”
That we would be a church on the move in this time we live in, but while on the move, never forgetting where we have come from. We will be a church that will provide the ministry tools to succeed in ministry. Our goals are to minister to those in need, mend the hurts of each person that we come in contact with, and to teach the Word of God.
