To make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world

At first read, this might sound like an impossible mission to accomplish... and it would be, if not for the transforming power of the Holy Spirit working in and through the lives of those who have accepted the gift of grace from God. We are simply an imperfect group of people who are attempting to help other imperfect people connect with the one true and perfect God. We believe that life with Christ at the center is better now and forever!
