ABOUT US

"I have a vision... a vision of the greatest church on earth — not because it’s the biggest, but because it’s true, pure, and committed to Christ. It’s the greatest — not because of its buildings, but because of its faith, devotion, and honesty. It’s the greatest — not because of its wealth, but because of its generosity, its giving and sacrifice. It’s the greatest — not because of its weakness in the flesh, but because of its power in the Spirit. It’s the greatest — not because of its sin, but because of its forgiveness."

- Pastor Jon Venema

We show the influence of Christ by...

Reaching Out to others with the life transforming experience of knowing Jesus Christ;

Raising Up one another in the truth of God’s Word, the Bible, to strengthen our faith in and relationship with Christ;

Reverencing Christ Together with a mutually shared heart for worshipping God on Sunday and each day of the week.
