our purpose

Why We Exist

As a church of Jesus Christ, we exist to glorify God through making disciples by evangelizing the lost and equipping the saints.

What We Prioritize


The Bible, as the authoritative and inspired Word of God, informs and instructs all that we do, and is enough for us to accomplish God's purposes.

Gospel: This is our message. 

The gospel--the good news that we can have life with God through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus--is for both believers and unbelievers as it forms us as believers and fuels us forward in Christlikeness. 

Community: This is our family. 

Community is necessary for Biblical Christianity as God calls us into fellowship with Himself and with other believers in a local church where there is mutual authenticity, accountability, and encouragement.

Mission: This is our task. 

Mission is the task of the church to reach the world with the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
