---Our Beliefs


We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth

We are a dynamic and diverse community making a difference in the lives of individuals and in the world. We believe that life is better with Jesus and that being part of a vibrant, grace-filled congregation can help shape us into who God intends us to be. We invite you to Belong, Believe and Become with us!



Building relationships within an authentic Christian community, where all are valued, loved and nurtured.


Experiencing abundant life in Jesus Christ, where children, youth and adults find hope, forgiveness and meaning.



Learning to become more of who we are meant to be; where gratitude and making a difference in the world become a way of life.
