Our mission is to bring glory to God by loving him with all our being, by loving others as Jesus loves us, and by making disciples of all nations.

Our vision is to have a clear pathway for people to become all God wants them to be. We accomplish this through Worship, Life Groups, Discipleship Groups, and Going to the Nations.

Cross-Cultural Missions

Making Disciples at the ends of the earth

We want to be obedient to the great commission to make disciples of all nations. Sometimes that means hopping on a plane. Each year pastor Chris trains hundreds of pastors in India. We send high school students to support mission work in the Dominican Republic. We partner with kingdom builders to build churches and orphanages in Mexico. We also support several cross cultural missionaries directly in India, Sudan, and London. As we have opportunity we go.
