where life-changing experiences take place daily!

You'll find small groups of all ages, including children's clubs and homework tutoring, youth groups, adult discussion groups, Bible studies, and fellowships. Our contemporary style of worship means you can "come as you are." You'll feel God's presence.

God has blessed us with a vision and the energy to bring about change in ourselves and our community — in other words, some very cool things. Join our growing body of believers and learn God's personal plan of action for you.
