Who We Are

A Church With Purpose

Before we get to know you, let’s tell you a little bit about us. Our church was founded with the goal of reaching those who don’t know Jesus and teaching those who do. We welcome anyone who’s curious to learn more about the Gospel, the life of Christ, or how to walk out their faith in today’s world. We encourage you to come as you are and let God meet you wherever you are in your life.

  • Join us Sundays at 10 am

We gather weekly to worship God and read from His Word. Our service includes a song and hymns, a sermon, and communion. If you have not been to church in a while or ever; don’t worry, there are no set rules and you can participate in songs and communion as you feel comfortable. These services are a time of personal and collective prayer, fellowship with others, and encouragement for the week ahead. We hope you’ll join us!

Below you’ll find brief bios for our Pastor and other members of our church leadership team. Rest assured that these men and women of God are passionate, seasoned, and knowledgeable. If you have any questions about our church or your walk of faith, you can count on them to help guide you to the answer.

We hope you feel right at home here. We’re not just a group of people that gathers every Sunday. We’re a family. And we’re here to serve you, so don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions. Welcome to our church.
