Here in Our Community

We start, strengthen, and serve the local church for multiplication Here, Near, and Far. We desire a congregation that has a heart like God’s for the nations and actively participates in the work of the Kingdom – spreading the gospel, seeking unity, and serving the most vulnerable.
