Our Mission

We are a church of Jesus Christ, an autonomous free church, bound by our living out of Christian love within our community and outside of our community; gathered together to respect and support one another despite our differences; to learn, to pray, to worship God, to show compassion, to forgive, and to grow in our discipleship; to do the work of Christ's mission; to live up to our responsibilities as people in covenant with our Conference, our pastor, our local church and each other.
