Who we are

Our Vision and Mission

God calls us to be followers of Jesus Christ and, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to grow as communities of grace, joy and peace so that God’s healing and hope flow through us to the world.

Gathering as believers, we worship, learn, and practice Jesus’ way of peace, so that we may serve others near and far.

How may I join?

We invite you to learn to know us, to join us in following Jesus Christ, and to become part of this community of believers.

Baptism and membership is available for persons who have confessed faith in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and give evidence of new life. Persons who are members of other churches may join through a letter of transfer or upon reaffirmation of faith.

  For no one can lay any foundation
other than the one that has been laid;
that foundation is Jesus Christ.
