Our Mission & Vision

Reaching the Lost, Teaching the Saved, Loving One Another

Acts 2:41-47
41 So then, those who had received his word were baptized; and that day there were added about three thousand souls. 42 They were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.

43 Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe; and many wonders and signs were taking place through the apostles. 44 And all those who had believed were together and had all things in common; 45 and they began selling their property and possessions and were sharing them with all, as anyone might have need. 46 Day by day continuing with one mind in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they were taking their meals together with gladness and sincerity of heart,47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord was adding to their number day by day those who were being saved.

Our Beliefs

We seek to uplift Christ as we follow Him, learn of Him and share Him with the world. 

We believe the Bible. The Bible is how God tells us who He is and what He has done for us. The Bible is God’s Word and we believe that it is completely true. That is why the Bible has authority over our lives in regard to what we say, think and do. The Bible contains the best news mankind could have ever hoped to hear and that is the story of Jesus and His love and passion for mankind. It tells us of how He came into this world, born of a virgin, and led a perfect life. Then, as our Saviour, He went to a cross and there He died in the place of each of us as a sacrifice for our sins and opened the way to heaven for all of us. He was buried in a borrowed tomb but on the third day he was raised from the dead and claimed victory over sin and death for every person who will trust in Him. The Bible is the story of Jesus and it reveals His love for us, His plan for us, and the hope we have in Him.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are your meeting times?

9am inside service (wear your mask)

10:30am inside service (wear your mask, you can take it off once seated)

Are you offering kid classes?

Yes! We are offering a kids class in our 10:30 service. They meet in the fellowship  hall. As the walk in the door they sanitize their hands and we check their temperature. They sit socially distant and have their own box of craft supplies that no one else touches. After the children leave we sanitize the whole room.

How are you providing a safe worship environment with COVID19 still a threat?

We ask all who attend to wear a mask/face covering. We offer masks to those who do not have one.

We encourage social distancing inside our facility. This means we have certain pews marked off so that we can maintain a 6ft distance from one another. Additionally, our ushers seat and dismiss those who attend our indoor worship service.

We have hand sanitization stations in multiple areas of our facility where you come into our building and in our worship areas.

Our facility goes through a rigorous cleaning before we open for worship on Sundays.
