Our vision as a church is simple: We exist to live love.
Live love. That's it--two words. And each of them is essential.
We don’t exist to “feel” love or simply to “offer verbal expressions of” love. It’s not our mission to “periodically try to” love or to “dabble at” love.
We want to live love–to let love consume us. After all, Christ said that God’s most important commands were for us to love God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love our neighbor as ourself. (Luke 10:27). Our goal is to make love a lifestyle.
Our goal is not to “live general affection,” to “live vague goodwill,” or to “live safe and manageable well-wishes.”
Our desire is to recklessly love God and others—to live life with an outward focus, striving to show generosity, compassion and forgiveness, even when it’s inconvenient. Also, we’re convinced that living love means sharing the fantastic news of the gospel with those who are far from God.

We believe a church that lives love is a church whose behavior continually demonstrates who God is, soaking its members in blessing and drawing outsiders closer to a God who loves them.
That’s the church we’re striving to be. We’d love to have you on board.
