A Christ-centered, Bible-based, and Family-oriented church committed to God, each other, and our community.

Our 2018 Theme: Transformed

We are saved through Christ, and then we are changed through Christ.  As the apostle Paul challenged Christians: “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind” (Romans 12:2).  This year we are focusing on the Christian transformation, from self-centered, sinful people, to people that live and think more like Christ.  Join us in 2018 as we renew our commitment to becoming what God knows we can be!
