God has one main purpose -- to draw people into a saving relationship with Himself by the power of the Holy Spirit, through the resurrection of Jesus. Each local church body has a specific vision of how they serve God's purpose in their context. Here is what we believe and organize our church around regarding that Mission and Vision-culture
Our parent church body has been serving Jesus by serving his people since 1847. We trace our roots to the Reformation of the early 1500's and are grounded in the truth taught in scripture.
