Malls are trendy. Church
With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that there is still a church that feels like a church. It won’t feel like a rock concert, comedy club, or motivational seminar. It’s not old-fashioned, as in 50 years ago, it is timeless, as in 2,000 years ago.

Visiting any church for the very first time can be a tough experience. Well, we want to put you at ease. On your visit, you can expect it to feel like church.
