Seeking to live out the good news of God’s love for all people

We are a vibrant and intimate family of faith, joyfully inclusive of all who come into our midst, and seeking to live out the Good News of God's love for all people. We cherish the following distinctively Baptist freedoms:

  • Soul freedom
  • Church freedom
  • Bible freedom
  • Religious freedom

Dedicated to worshiping God and to encouraging spiritual growth, we strive to provide each person the space to explore what he or she needs in order to grow in an understanding of God. We believe that all persons are an essential part of the body of Christ, whatever their gifts, and we encourage our members to preach, to lead worship, and to teach. Above all, we support each other in our spiritual and life journeys, that we may become ever more the people God created us to be.
