We exist to help people know the love of God in Jesus and live it out in all of their lives.

Our Mission—

We exist to glorify God by shaping and sending wholehearted disciples with a resilient hope in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.


As a church we are…


The Good News that God saves sinners through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus and empowers them by the Holy Spirit for new life with him in his Kingdom is central in everything from Worship Gatherings to Discipleship Groups.


We desire to be biblical, not just theological. As a Protestant church, Luther, Calvin, Keller, and Piper are awesome, but the Bible is a more amazing and sure foundation.


We are made for relationship. Our triune God made us for relationship with himself, others, and ourselves and has given us a relational Gospel to believe and live.


We seek to understand, love, and live in the time, place, and people that God has placed around us.

We meet Sundays at 10:00am

What you can expect on a Sunday


We preach Jesus from the Bible.

While you will learn some good things like historical background on the text, how to grow in your relationships or vocation, none of those are the primary purpose of preaching. Without Jesus, none of those things matter. Since Jesus is what we all need more than anything, and since the Bible is all about Him, we preach Jesus from the Bible every Sunday.

Kid’s Ministry.

Help parents raise kids who love Jesus.

Our focus is on helping parents raise kids who love Jesus. We don’t just want to babysit children or do the work of discipling kids for their parents, we want to help train you, the parents or future parents, to raise kids who know and love Jesus.

Modern Liturgy.

Public rhythms for private practices.

Our Sunday gatherings are also shaped by the rich heritage of faith that has been handed down through the centuries, so we seek to use a modern liturgy. We sing hymns that are centuries old done in ways that are understandable to us in this time. We read creeds, catechisms, and responsive readings as a church because we believe God loves hearing us proclaim truth about him together.
