As a growing church we are in the process of going through a variety of shifts to support a changing culture. In the last 5 years we have gone through a structural change, redefined our mission and vision and have established a set of guiding principles. We are continuously committed to seeking God’s call on our lives as individuals and as a community of faith. We believe we are called to transform the world with the love of Christ and invite all to share in the adventure.
