Our Mission

 

                                                                     

We are a church of Christ-followers who seek to be connected with God and experience an authentic relationship

with Him, each other, and the world.

                             Connecting with God

                                                                                                                                                                                                   

                                           Connecting with GOD through building a love relationship,

                                           discerning His will, and aligning ourselves with His will.



                                                                                            "As the deer pants for steams of water, 

                                                                                            so my soul pants for you, O God. 

                                                                                            My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. 

                                                                                            When can I go and meet with God?" --Psalm 42:1-2

  Connecting with Each other

                                                                                                                                                                                                           

   Connecting with EACH OTHER by building authentic

relationships through Life Groups, Worship, and Outreach.




                                  "Instead, we will speak the truth in love, growing in every way

                             more and more like Christ, who is the head of His body, the church. 

                                              He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. 

                           As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, 

            so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love." --Ephesians 4:15-16

                Connecting with the World

                                                                                                                                                                                                       

                                        Connecting with THE WORLD through missions and outreach

                                        by challenging ourselves and each other to love, as Christ loved,

                                        and to embrace everyone on our journey.



                                                                                "This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. 

                                                                                And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters. 

                                                                                Dear children, let us not love with words or speech

                                                                                but with actions and in truth." --1 John 16, 18
