We are members of the family of Christ. Our Vision is to experience God through authentic Christ-centered fellowship and study of His Word, so as to grow in our desire to exalt God in heartfelt worship and to extend His offer of personal relationship to those who don't know Him. We believe in teaching and living God’s word according to His will and plan. Our vision is to spread the Gospel to lost souls, teaching all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
