Our Mission


We believe that the door to salvation is always open and so are the doors to our church. Our mission is to witness to our community the love of Christ by opening our arms to those in search of the truth. We try to show God’s love and concern for everyone in our community at every opportunity. Through the power of prayer, works of charity and opening our doors to listen, we feel that we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus Christ.



Our church offers a service to make your wedding special and unique.
