STATEMENTS INTO ACTIONS

People come into a church with a lot of questions. We get that. It would take a lifetime of conversation to talk through all the goodness and awesomeness of God. But He can be known, and that’s why we gather to worship Him and respond by going out to love people. We believe some things are essential to understanding and being in relationship with God, and we've structured ourselves around that foundation. A list of some of those things can be found in our Constitution and Bylaws. For a list of the Elder Committees referenced in our bylaws, contact us.
