Key Scripture: Romans 12:1-2
I appeal to you therefore, brothers and sisters, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Our Mission: We seek to create a place of welcome and healing, where people of all ages can meet Jesus Christ and become a vital part of Christ’s Ministry.
