Community Vision & Covenant

We are a small community of people who have received Jesus Christ as our savior and are seeking to have him become the Lord of our lives.  We are in agreement with the basic, core beliefs of historic Christianity and in response to those beliefs seek to express our community relationships in the following ways:

WE GATHER TO ... EXPRESS WORSHIP

We seek to glorify God by being fully satisfied in him, and being fully  satisfied in him we seek to glorify him all the more.

WE GATHER TO ... LISTEN TO GOD'S WORD: THE BIBLE

We seek to expose our heart to God's written word, the Bible because it is alive and relevant to our lives through the presence through Jesus Christ, the Living Word.

We seek through Christ's power to see people and every arena of life transformed to their God-given, intended purposes.
