Who We Are

We value being educated and inspired towards God and Christian service. Everything we do strives to affirm this educational direction: pastoral leadership, elder and deacon selection, church school, music, youth programs, mission outreach, small groups, church services and social service.
We exist to spread a passion for the knowledge of God in all people’s hearts, minds and bodies, so that all their joy may be complete for the glory of God. We desire to be an innovative preaching and teaching congregation of the truth of God’s Word and supremacy. He provides for us spiritually, emotionally and physically. We worship God with our minds, love Him with our hearts and serve Him with our bodies glorifying Him immensely.
We provide opportunities to build a love relationship with Jesus Christ and each other both individually and corporately. With Jesus as the core of our lives, we focus on care, compassion and restoration.
Finally, with emphasis on the Presbyterian heritage of Christian education and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we cultivate a deeper commitment to Jesus Christ and His great commission by building and savoring a stronger Christian presence in our families, our church, our community and in our world. Here we delight in joy and find rest for all souls to magnify His glory.
