The God-Given Vision of our Senior Pastor is to powerfully transform the lives of people through the uncompromising Word of God, empowering them to live a victorious life, fulfill their God-given purpose, and reign in the earth.


Our Mission as a community of believers is to fulfill God’s divine purpose by bringing the Kingdom of God to the earth realm, empowering people through the uncompromising Word of God to fulfill their God-given purpose and live a victorious life in Christ — starting with our community and reaching beyond the walls of the church so that people of all backgrounds and walks of life can experience abundant life through the resurrecting Power of God!


Our leadership team recognizes the authority of God and realizes that we are shepherds who serve under the Chief Shepherd, Jesus Christ.  We understand that our responsibility is to equip the believers for the work of the ministry until we all attain maturity in the fullness of Christ.
