We seek to be a community of faith where Jesus is honored as Lord and Savior, where His Holy Spirit is free to accomplish His convicting, healing, saving work in all hearts, where Scripture is the beloved norm that informs all our faith and practice, where people of all races, ages, and cultures find themselves drawn into God's presence, where discipleship to Jesus is intentional and opportunities to grow and serve abound, where Christ's Great Commission is taken as seriously as His commandment to love.
On Oct. 9th we passed the final inspection on the new building. Praise be to God and thanks to all those who were used to make the new building a reality.
