What is "The Movement?"

The Movement is our purposeful, sustained, and Gospel-centered initiative that propels us to preach, teach, and live the principles of the Great Commission (Matthew 28:16-20). 


We're guided by our vision to proclaim Christ and equip the saints in the bond of fellowship. We'd love to share how our core values of worship, discipleship, service and evangelism will transform your relationship with God and humanity.
