Church Leadership also affirms the following statements:

To know Christ and to make Him known

Our Mission Statement:  Based on the fact of the inerrant inspired holy Scriptures, with a personal faith in Jesus Christ through the power of the Holy Spirit, it is our purpose to glorify God by our praise in worship, the evangelism of the lost, and the equipping and edifying of the body of believers.

Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
