what we believe

We believe that Christ-centered living is formed by the ways people worship, study, and nurture each other.

We submit ourselves in prayer and worship to God and celebrate with grateful ears God's grace and forgiveness at work in the world.

We seek spiritual growth in our life through study.

We express the inclusive hospitality of Jesus Christ by welcoming all into fellowship.

We are called to serve others, advocating for those most in need as we strive to create a more just and peaceful world.
