Our Outreach statement sums it up: We are a church of the AALC; Bible based, Christ centered and mission driven. Where scripture is our foundation, the cross is our hope and Jesus Christ is our Savior. We journey in faith and all are welcome.

"The Bible is alive, it speaks to me; it has feet, it runs after me;
it has hands, it lays hold of me."
