Who We Are

We are a Christ-centered congregation in the Baptist tradition, yet many in our fellowship come from a wide variety of backgrounds and faith traditions. We are a warm and welcoming community of Christ-followers who love to worship, study and serve together, and diversity is one of our greatest strengths. We pray that you will soon find a congregation where you can grow and serve, and we invite you to come and see if our congregation might be that place for you. May you know God's grace and peace.
