ABOUT US


WHAT WE BELIEVE


Receive: Every good and perfect gift is from above.  Everything we have is from God and is, "on loan" to us.  There are countless blessings that we receive from God. 

Respond: Out of God's abundant blessings, we feel we must respond to His gracious gifts.  We do so through worship, tithe, sacraments, acts of service, and constant love towards our neighbors. 

Reach: We believe God offers us sufficient grace, and that we are empowered in order to participate in His kingdom HERE and NOW. We feel it is our job to BE the people of God.
