Who We Are

We are a church who believes in three basic tenets:
We praise the Lord...(I will bless the Lord at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth).
We study the Word...(Study to show thyself approved, before God, a worker who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth).
We let our light shine...(Let your light shine before men, so they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven).

Our Services

What are services like?
We have Church School from 9:45 a.m. until 10:30 a.m., followed by fellowship time from 10:30 until 11:00 a.m. Worship is very spirit-filled and usually begins with praise and worship. Congregational and choir singing, prayer and preaching. Communion on the 1st Sunday of the month at the morning worship. 4th and 5th Sundays are always casual/youth Sundays and last Sunday of the month we have refreshments after morning worship to celebrate monthly birthdays, new members and baptisms.

What is the community like?
Very warm and friendly, multicultural. Multi-generational. We are very encouraging to our kids, youth to participate. We honor our seniors and there is a place for everyone to work.

What if I'm not a Christian?
We believe that God's house is open to everyone...if your not a Christian, we believe that when you see the love of Christ in us, it will encourage you to consider Christ. We lift Him up...and He does the drawing and saving.
