Serving the Community - Shaping the World
We strive to extend the hospitality of Christ to all and to provide worship settings and a range of ministries that respond to diverse spiritual needs and religious backgrounds. The apostle Paul said, “I become all things to all people, in order that I might win some” (1 Corinthians 9:22). We agree with Paul. The gospel is for everyone, and so is the church.
