Please know that, whoever you are and from wherever you have come, you are welcome in God's house.

We are striving to be the "church Jesus Christ comes back for" in all that we do. We believe that faith in God is not religion, it is relationship with our Creator, Sustainer, and Holy Helper. We believe God wants us to enjoy the life He has given us and He wants us to share Him with others so they can know Him and enjoy the Holy Spirit in their lives now! We are servants of God.
