Our Mission & Vision

We seek to be vessels of Living Water; filled by the Holy Spirit, transformed in the Son, and poured out for the Father’s glory.

Pastoral Team:

Our pastoral team recognizes the authority of God, and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We desire to devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the Word. Our passion and goal is to equip  believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
