We want to be a church that reflects others that are constantly concerned about our community in reaching out and touching others. Jesus said "Love the Lord, thy God, with all your heart, mind, soul and body" and "Love your neighbor as yourself". Then, Jesus said "If we can get these two right, we could get everything right." Once you do that, you can take the spiritual giftedness that God gave you and embrace God's kingdom for service.
In summary, we worship our Heavenly Father, we love others and we serve in some capacity to the glory of God. Our final focus is to invite others to join us on this journey.
Will you join us on our journey?
