The Four Heartbeats :
Engaging the Mission

We endeavor to execute our mission through the four beats of the heart of our ministry.

  1. Loving God through enthusiastic worship
  2. Living Better through fellowship and practical ministries
  3. Lifting People through compassionate community service
  4. Learning the Bible and Kingdom Purpose through insightful teachings

“You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself.” -Luke 10:27
