Our main desire is to help move people into an authentic relationship with Jesus by helping people experience the love of God in a real and personal way (Pursue God), sharing the hope of Jesus by serving people and our community with compassion (Share Hope), and building friendships in groups that find answers together to life’s challenges (Build Community).

We are very excited about our future. We are a growing church at an exciting time with our community center approach with The Landing community center.
