Our Services

What are services like?
Blend of traditional with strong multi-media and multi-sensory experiences.

What is the community like?
Mutli-generational and Multi-racial. Farmers, teachers, retirees and young families.

What if I'm not a Christian?
Because of our stong emphasis on social issues of doing the work that Jesus emphasied, rather than just a belief system, you would find that you would be comfortable. While we as Christians respond faithfully to the call to proclaim the gospel in all places, we can never presume to know the full extent of God's work in the world, and we recognize the reality of God's activity outside the Christian church. It is central to our faith that salvation is accomplished not by human beings, but by God. We know that judgment as to the ultimate salvation of persons from any faith community, including Christianity, Judaism or Islam, belongs to God alone.
