who we are


We are ... Bible Believing
The Bible is totally God's Word.  It alone can guide and lead us to a close
relationship with God.
... Christ Sharing
Jesus alone has the answers for life's problems.  Getting to know him will
change your life.
... People Oriented
We care about you because Jesus cares about you.  Our present and future
ministries are designed to meet your needs.

We Believe ...
    • in the Triune God - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
    • Jesus is both the Son of God and a human being: born of a virgin, lived a perfect, sinless life and died for everyone.
    • in personal forgiveness and life with God now and forever only through trust in Jesus, our Savior.
    • in the power of God's Word to change a person's life.


We exist as a family of Christians for two reasons. The first is to encourage one another in and with God's Word. We believe the amazing message that God communicates to us in his Word.  Despite the fact that we are sinful and deserve nothing but punishment from God, God has given his Son Jesus to be our substitute and to save us from our sins. It is this message that we strive to encourage one another with.

Secondly, we exist to proclaim that message to as many people as possible. We want all people to know about our Savior from sin. Therefore, in our ministry we strive to share that message here in our community and throughout the world.
