Mission drives our efforts. It's the common goal toward which we do all worship, discipleship, and service

Our Mission -  What are we doing?

In August of 2015, our leadership began the year-long process of refocusing the mission, values, and strategy of our church. The previous mission statement no longer fit where we found ourselves as a church or how we fit into our community. Once we recognized the disparity between what we said and who we really were, we set out to re-think and redefine our efforts. We took a long look at our church structure, our congregation, and our community.

Stated simply, our mission is to send transformed people to influence their world for Christ. This means we want to leverage our resources, central location, and church influence in order to transform our achievement-driven, family-oriented, and highly-educated community with the only message able to transform whole persons and whole communities: the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ for sinners and for sin.
