We believe that…

… we are imperfect people in need of forgiveness that only God can provide.

… God sent His Son, Jesus, to be our Savior from sin.

… Jesus gave His life on the cross so that we can be forgiven.

… Jesus died and rose again so that death will have no power over us.

… through Jesus we will live forever, forgiven and free.

Our Pastor

Quality, not quantity

We have made quality our habit. It’s not something that we just strive for – we live by this principle every day.
