We are a congregation of the Evangelical Covenant Church who seeks to nurture people that are deeply committed to Jesus Christ and engaged in Christ's mission in the world. Together, we affirm the Word of God, the necessity of new birth in Christ, a commitment to the whole mission of the Church, the Church as a fellowship of believers, a conscious dependence on the Holy Spirit, and the reality of freedom in Christ. Connect with our pastor to learn more about the community of faith or how to begin a new relationship with Jesus.
Simply put, we are a family. Like all families, we are made up of normal, imperfect people of all different ages and walks of life. You'll find a warm and welcoming community here, as well as relevant teaching, authentic worship, honest friendship, and prayer.
