About Us

Who We Are

We are a family of believers in Jesus Christ, the One and only Son of God. In our family, people are loved and accepted for who they are and are challenged to grow into who God wants them to be. Our family seeks each day to be a people who love God and love people expressing that love through service in Christ. We want to know Jesus and make him known.

We invite you into our family to share in this incredible journey of life in Jesus Christ.

What We Believe

We believe God has called us to graciously represent Jesus in our community. Therefore, prompted by God's love for us demonstrated through Jesus Christ, our goal is to obey our Lord and to do what Jesus has asked of us.

We believe the message of the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus is good news and that it is our purpose to share that good news.

We believe God has called us to guide people in becoming disciples of Jesus, becoming like Jesus, empowered by his Holy Spirit.

We place a high value on baptism through immersion and particpating in communion every week.

We gather together to worship God, build each other up through prayer and the study of scripture, and seek to serve one another and our community in love.

We believe that Christ is revealed through scripture and seek to align ourselves with his teaching and life using scripture as our guide. As we approach scripture, we believe "In essentials, unity; in opinions, liberty; in all things love."

We gather for all these purposes with the understanding that this ministry is the responsibility of the body as a whole. Each member is gifted, valuable, and has a role to play.

We are a non-denominational Christian church with roots in the Restoration Movement and connections with other Christian Churches/Churches of Christ.
