About Our Church
Thanks for knocking on our “door”. Basically, we are a very warm and friendly community of Christ followers who believe in loving and caring for each other and our community, living on-mission as we follow Jesus. We gather on Sundays to worship in song, community, encouragement, open our lives to the Word, pray, and celebrate together. Children and youth are a high value of ours, hosting opportunities for the younger generations to know and grow in the Lord. We have various gatherings throughout the week as you’ll see from our events page and calendar, valuing smaller circles and table settings. If you would like more detailed information, read on 😉
We are a Foursquare Church, meaning we are a part of a global community of thousands of church communities who acknowledge that Jesus Christ is “the same yesterday, today, and forever” Hebrews 13:8
We believe that Jesus is the Savior, Healer, Baptizer, and Soon Coming King. These theological realities shape our hope in and worship of Jesus.
