Who We Are, and Why We Do What We Do

We believe it when Jesus tells us in Matthew that the Greatest Commandments are to:


We believe a Great Commitment to the Great Commandment and
the Great Commission will grow a Great Church and Great Christians.

The purpose of our church is based on two key scriptures:

The Greatest Commandment

"Jesus said, Love the Lord your God with all your heart…soul…and mind.  This is the first and greatest commandment.  And a second is like it:  Love your neighbor as yourself.  All the Law and Prophets hang on these two commandments.’"
Matthew 22:36-40

The Great Commission

"Jesus said, 'Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.’"
Matthew 28:19-20
