Our vision

We see an “assembly” of born-again believers,

whose sole desire is to grow and mature in their faith,

being transformed more fully into the loving image of Jesus Christ.

According to the Bible, our vision must be anchored in and fueled only by the gospel – which is the good news that in the person of Jesus Christ, God reached down to a sinful world by living the life we could not live, dying the death that was ours to die, and rising to new life giving us hope that his sacrifice was the perfect and final payment for our sin (Hebrews 9-10). Therefore, our trifold response to the gospel is a life lived reaching up, reaching in, and reaching out.




Since God has equipped us with heads, hearts, and hands, our worship services are geared to inform the mind intellectually, engage the heart emotionally, and bend the will volitionally (Isaiah 6:1-8).




We must continually seek to minister the gospel to one another inside our fellowship by doing life together, trusting that God will see fit to “form Christ in us” as a result (Galatians 4:19).




It is our privilege and responsibility to intentionally minister God's gospel to those outside our fellowship by faithfully declaring the Word (Jeremiah 23:28) and seeking the general peace and prosperity of our city (Jeremiah 29:7) and beyond (Acts 1:8).

What we value
