Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to worship, grow, and share!
A maturing believer is one who seeks to glorify God, continues to move towards Christlikeness, and pursues other disciples to bring along with him or her.
“Maturity is an ongoing process without an endpoint this side of eternity.”
– Daniel Im, No Silver Bullets.
Our mission as a church is to help, encourage, and train you to accomplish your mission.
