WHY WE EXIST

  • Connector.

    TO REACH THE UNCHURCHED:

    The unchurched are those who have never stepped foot in a church. If that’s you, we want you to know you are welcome here. We want you to feel loved from the moment you drive into our parking lot. We believe Jesus changes everything, and that anyone can be forever changed by the amazing love of God. No matter what you believe, we have a seat for you.

  • Connector.

    TO REACH THE DECHURCHED:

    The dechurched are those who grew up in church, but stopped going for whatever reason. If that’s you, we want you to know we created our church just for you! God has called us to be a little different than what you may know about church. We don’t exist to tell people how bad they are, but to tell people how amazing Jesus is.

    PEOPLE WHO ARE HURTING:

    We know that many people who walk through our doors will be hurting. If that’s you, we want you to leave feeling encouraged and uplifted. We don’t have the solution to all of life’s problems, but we believe in a God who knows you and cares about you just as you are. Jesus said that if you put your faith in Him, He will comfort you and fill you with peace.
