mission statement

Loving God and Caring for Our Community Since 1954

Chrisitan - We declare ourselves to be part of the Body of Christ the Christian church. We continue the witness of the early disciples to the reality and power of the crucified and risen Christ, Jesus of Nazareth.

Reformed - We confess the authority of one God. We affirm the primacy of the Scriptures, the doctrine of justification by faith, the priesthood of all believers, and the principle of Christian freedom.

Evangelical - The primary task of the church is the proclamation of the Gospel. The "Good News" of God's love revealed with power in Jesus Christ. We proclaim this Gospel by word and deed to individual persons and to society.
