What we are about

  • We are a body of believers who try and pattern ourselves after the New Testament Church established by Christ 
  • we are not one of the mega churches you get lost among the crowd in but rather are a mid sized family oriented congregation
  • we don’t have a dress code; come as you are.  Most of us dress casually when we worship together.
  • Our praise service offers a variety of music styles- modern contemporary praise, southern gospel, bluegrass, traditional hymns.  We like to mix it up here.
  • We love to fellowship: Sunday morning breakfast, Sunday school, morning praise/worship, monthly Sunday noon meal fellowship, Sunday night small group meetings, Wednesday youth group/kids club/college fellowship/adult Bible study.
  • We partake of communion together every Sunday as patterned by the early church in Acts 2
  • We are not a house of saints but rather a hospital for sinners

Our Beliefs
