We believe the church gathers to worship, honor, glorify and magnify the name of Christ. To that end, we desire to worship well.
We believe making disciples is the mission of the church. We desire to see Christians kill sin, grow in love for Christ, and increase in knowledge of the Gospel. We have been given this ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5), and live this out as the center of our mission.
We believe that the Gospel is the means by which those who are far from God come to know God. To that end, our mission is to take the Gospel to the ends of the earth, starting at the end of our driveway. We desire to see the Gospel change our community, one person at a time.
