Our Mission is to brighten the lives of others by spreading good news of inspiration, hope and a sense of restoration to individuals, families and communities around us, who, without help like ours, would not find a path to a living a completely fulfilled life and securing a bright future


To reinvent church around people, 

not around buildings.


We highly value our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God. We value the word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all of the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.
