Mission Statement: 

The vision of the church: Our vision is what we see before us. It is the future we seek to create and strive to embrace.

We picture a faith community devoted to reaching out, finding meaning in life, improving the community, re-envisioning the church and transforming the world.

The mission of the church: Our mission is defined by what we do: building, seeking, reaching, introducing, and growing.

We understand our mission as building an authentic Christian community that seeks to reach those outside the faith, introduce them to Christ and grow together in discipleship.
