Our Hope is Anchored to the Rock!
- OUR – We are a family, united to carry out Christ’s work, and introduce others to Jesus.
- HOPE – We have the assurance that by individually accepting Jesus’ death as payment for our sins, we will spend forever with Christ. As a result, we depend on the Bible and Holy Spirit for guidance in living a life that honors our Lord.
- ANCHORED – We are committed to Jesus Christ and to each other. In our daily lives, we strive to become more like Christ.
- ROCK – Jesus Christ is the Rock, both the Head and foundation of our church.
