  • We give praise through singing, prayer, and fellowship.

  • We practice giving and sharing through a weekly offering to support the work of the church.

what we believe:
  • We believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth.

  • We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God.

  • We believe we are all sinners who are saved by grace through faith in the blood  Jesus shed at the cross.

  • We believe in the Holy Spirit, who is given to all through our baptism into Christ.

  • We believe that we accept God’s grace through faith, repentance and baptism into Jesus Christ.

  • We believe in celebrating the life, death, burial and resurrection of Jesus through a weekly observance of  the Lord’s Supper.

  • We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God.
