Our Purpose

The purpose of this church is to lead people to acknowledge God, to have faith in Jesus Christ, to live life in the power of the Holy Spirit, as revealed in Christian scripture, so that together we might be encouraged and nurtured by the church's ministries, in order to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ, to do God's will, and to work for the unity of the Spirit among all Christians in the mutual building of God's reign on earth.
