We exist to glorify God by Meeting for worship, Maturing in our faith, and Making disciples.
God’s word instructs believers “not to neglect meeting together.” According to the Bible, meeting regularly enables us to worship corporately and encourages us to continue maturing in our faith. (Heb. 10:24-25, 1 Thess. 5:11)
Once saved, Christians begin the sanctification process. We are to be ever maturing in our faith. The Holy Spirit guides us into all truth as we draw near to God through prayer and Bible Study. (Eph. 4:13-15, 2 Tim. 3:16-17)
As Believers become disciples of Christ, they are to make disciples by sharing Christ with all and training in righteousness. The lost depend on our faithfulness; God desires to use us for His glory in our families, communities, and world. Each is called to various services, but we are all commanded to share the Gospel in word and deed. (Matthew 28:18-19, Matt. 9:35-38, Rom. 10:13-14)

Provides children with a learning environment where they are first taught of God’s love and our love for Him in response. The basic foundation of the Christian faith is taught through Bible stories with crafts and games being used as visual aids. Songs are also part of the curriculum to help keep the children engaged so that every opportunity to communicate the Gospel is taken. Children are not to be hindered as they come to Christ; spiritual growth continues beyond salvation.
