Who We Are

We Are

  • We are a community of imperfect people who come as we are, seeking to know and follow Jesus Christ with our whole lives. 
  • We know we don’t have all the answers, but we know the Creator who does.
  • We look to Jesus and His church to restore us when we are battered and broken.
  • We look to Jesus and His church to refuel us when we are weary and worn.
  • We return to our personal lives with Jesus at the very center, participating with Him in changing the world, one life at a time.
