OUR MISSION:

We believe the local church is the hope of the world.  As we serve others both in our community and around the world our prayer is that the hearts of people will become open to the love and hope of Jesus Christ.

LOCAL MISSIONS: 

We exist to serve others by showing God’s love in practical ways through meeting the needs within our communities and spheres of influence.Simple acts of personal kindness can open hearts to the love of Jesus for both those being served and those serving. We want every person who is passionate about helping people to find the right opportunities to effectively use their gifts to build up the body of Christ and extend the Kingdom of God
