Connect with Us!

God intends us to live life authentically.  As recipients of grace, we are proof that God accepts people right where they are, and then lovingly moves them right where He wants them to be. We believe the answers for all of life and eternity are found in a personal relationship with God, through faith, in Christ. We are “of God” and committed to sharing His Truth.

We are a purposeful church that encourages, challenges, prays, serves and learns together. Our goals are to Connect, Surrender and Serve. We believe the Bible is God-breathed - true, living and active; that it is authoritative and applicable to every part of our lives. Together, we study, teach and follow the Bible as our sole authority and guidebook for life. We invite you to explore and experience God and His living Word.

It happened that while Jesus was praying in a certain place, after He had finished, one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray just as John also taught his disciples.”  Luke 11:1
