As the people of God, we are called to develop our faith through the understanding of God’s love and to be a church dedicated to prayer.  

We believe that Christ is calling us to serve by being present and welcoming to all, regardless of ethnic, cultural or economic background.

God calls us to give our time, talent and monetary resources to proclaim effectively the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
