Our Church

Member Church


Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals



People consider many things when visiting churches. The teaching. The music. Age groups. Families. Singles. Opportunities to serve. What you may be seeking could be dramatically different from the next person - or it could be exactly the same.

With open doors and open hearts Our congregation covers many generations, among which are people of every stage of faith. We welcome those seeking God and His truths, regardless of questions, baggage, or plain old life experiences.


Whatever you're looking for... you mean something to God. As God's church, you mean something to us. You are always welcome here.

"We are the church as God intended ...

...a community of believers who come together to follow the teachings of the Bible and spread the message of God's love. Along the way, we teach and share. We sing and laugh. We roll up our sleeves and get involved. And sometimes, we're quietly still in the presence of God."

"Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up."

(Deut. 11:19)


This passage is indicative of the Bible's intention that children be taught by their parents about the things of God. Fathers who take this responsibility seriously not only strengthen their own families but their churches as well. Men who lead their families well are those who will lead their churches well.

(Ephesians 6:4)

A worship service is a celebration. It is a time when we come into Godís presence and praise Him. Each service is filled with music and teaching, joy and insight.

We provide many opportunities for people of all ages to experience and celebrate God and a life of faith.

This Easter, we Pray - let us travel this journey with you. Let us all stay awake while our Savior prays in the garden of Gethsemane. And let us all rejoice on His return.

So we can sing it,

and tell it, and live it.
