"This church is a gathering of forgiven sinners, called to be holy, dedicated to service. Saved by the patient grace of God, we deal patiently with others. Knowing our own weakness and failures, we bring good news to all sinners with understand of their condition, and with hope in God."  

Our World Belongs to God: A Contemporary Testimony

"And Jesus came and said to His disciples, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."

Matthew 28:18-20

children's ministries

Parents are the key spiritual leaders in the lives of their children. In baptism, we promise to support parents in their mission to raise a child in the way they should go. As such, we offer many classes, programs, and opportunities for every child to learn about Jesus. If you'd like more information about our Children's Ministries please click the link below.
