In obedience to God, as a Christ-centered body of believers, we commit to disciple, enable and encourage one another to love, worship and serve God. Led by the Holy Spirit we will fulfill God’s commandments and reach lost souls for the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ.

(Mark 12:29-31; Matthew 28:18-20)
