About us:
We exist to glorify God through worshipping Him, edifying His people, and evangelizing the world.  We are committed to the Great Commandment to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and the second to love our neighbors as ourselves.  We are committed to preaching and teaching the truth of God’s Word so God’s people may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.  It is our desire that people will be rooted and established in love, that they may have the power together with all the saints to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know His love that surpasses knowledge – that they may be filled to the measure of the fullness of God. (Ephesians 3:17-19)
