Our Story

We’ve loved every minute of our journey

Our Mission

Our focus is to Share Christ, Make Disciples, and Grow the Fellowship. We make every effort to tell people the Good News, that Jesus, God's Son came to the earth to save every person who confesses Him as Savior for their sins. 

When a person comes to faith in Christ, we help them grow in their faith. In the process of worshiping and studying God's word together, we expect God to grow the church. It is God's church, not our own!

What our Fellow Christians are saying

I love the way the Bible is explained and made easier to understand. Sunday School class is so good. The church family is so welcoming.

Beth Fullerton

Having accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and recognizing that certain duties can be performed best in a fellowship, we covenant to walk together as members of Christ’s Church in Christian love. We believe it to be the mission of Christ's church to proclaim His Gospel to all mankind and to strive for the realization of the Kingdom of God.
