VISION & VALUES
Growing In Jesus Together
We are a people on pilgrimage. It's a journey we're on together, with a common destination - a forever relationship with Father God through faith in Jesus Christ. The purpose of every church should be to help one another grow in that relationship. Jesus summed it up this way - "Go, and make disciples" Matthew 28:19. Paul summed it up this way - "you are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit" Ephesians 2:22. We sum it up this way - It's all about growing. It's all about Jesus. It's all about together.
