Casual Atmosphere

Dress is casual and the atmosphere is relaxed.

Authentic Worship

We are designed to praise God with our entire lives.  Modern music, multimedia, and creative elements allow us to encounter God with a variety of senses.    

Relevant Teaching

For thousands of years the Bible has held the answers to life’s struggles, and today is no different!  Practical messages from the Bible lead us to experience the fullness of life promised by Jesus Christ.

Where do I go when I arrive?

If you're not sure where to go when you arrive, come in through the front doors and someone from our Host Team will personally escort you to where you need to go or assist you with where to take your children. 

Will there be room for me?

Our auditorium has plenty of room for you and your friends!

How do I begin a relationship with God?

Begin with the understanding that God loves you and created you for a purpose.  He knows you and wants you to experience His love for you and to return that love to Him.  In spite of your sin and disobedience, He continues to love you and draw you toward Him.

Some people think that going to church makes you a Christian.  Sitting in church doesn't make you a Christian any more than sitting in a football game makes you a player.  It's so much more!

Others think that getting to heaven is based on doing good things, like God has a giant scale in the sky and when you stand before Him, He weighs your good and bad and sends you to heaven or hell based on your deeds. The Bible says nothing about getting to heaven based on your works, but in fact says in Ephesians 2:8-9, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast."

Some believe that being baptized makes you a Christian and that immersion in water washes away sin - but baptism is only a public demonstration of a private commitment of the heart.  Jesus died willingly on the cross not because He had to, but by His choice.  He took your place, taking your punishment.  When you ask, God forgives you and accepts Jesus' death as payment for your sin.

To become a Christian, pray to God in your own words.  Acknowledge that you are a sinner and ask for His forgiveness.  Believe that Jesus died on the cross to pay for your sins and rose from the dead three days later.  Invite Him into your life to be the Lord (or boss) of your life. This begins a new relationship between yourself and God.
