We strive to BE disciples of Jesus who MAKE disciples of Jesus.


OUR MISSION:  We are a Christian community practicing discipleship as we worship, learn and serve.


CORE VALUES:  As a community of Christian faith, we are defined by:

What we believe

We believe that Jesus is Lord and that God's love and grace are for everyone. (John 3:16-17)


We believe that we are justified, or made right with God, by God's grace alone, not by anything we do (or don't do). (Ephesians 2:8-9)

We believe that salvation is through faith, trusting in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus.


We believe that the Bible is the norm for faith and life, the standard by which teachings and doctrines are to be judged.


We believe that life lived following Jesus and his teachings is the best life there is, for ourselves, for our neighbors and for all of creation. We strive to grow in discipleship and live out our faith in daily life.
