About Us


Growing together as the church in fellowship and unity.


Ministering to the local community and reaching the ends of the earth.


Living in the fullness of Christ and the Spirit.

Our church motto is "Nurture, Serve, Thrive." These three themes communicate what we as a church are seeking to accomplish in our worship and work.


We seek to nurture the faith that the Lord gives every person  in our midst, both inside and outside of our church membership, by growing together in fellowship and unity.


We seek to serve all people in both physical and spiritual ways, by ministering to the local community and reaching the ends of the earth in Christ’s love.


We seek to live in the fullness of Christ-likeness and the power of the Holy Spirit, by continuing  to grow in faith, hope, and love as a vibrant and healthy congregation.
