In John's Gospel we read of the prayer and plan which Jesus offers for his followers. The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind so they might be one heart and mind with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit

What to Expect

Church's philosophy

We are to KNOW God, being of one heart with the Father through the Son;
We are to GROW in our relationship with each other, maturing together as the family of Christ;
We are to SHOW Jesus to the world, being a witness through who we are and what we do in His name
  • God


    God, who is one, is revealed 

    in three distinct persons

  • Jesus

    We believe in the mystery of salvation through Jesus Christ. God became human in Jesus of Nazareth; and his life, death, and resurrection demonstrate God's redeeming love. 

  • The Holy Spirit

    The Holy Spirit is God's present activity in our midst. When we sense God's leading,

    God's challenge, or God's support,

    it's the Holy Spirit at work. 

Human Beings


Genesis 1:27 asserts that we've been

made in the image of the Creator.

Like God, we have the capacity to

love and care, to communicate, and to create. 

The Bible

We believe the bible is the primary authority for our faith and our practice. 

The Church

The church is the body of Christ, an extension of Christ's life and ministry in the world today. 

God's Reign

The kingdom or reign of God is both a present reality and future hope.
