Jesus said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light” (Matt 11:28–30) A yoke is “a wooden crosspiece that is fastened over the neck of two animals and attached to the plow or cart that they are to pull.” Jesus uses this image to point out our need for Him. We need Him because we are sinners, and sin has put a heavy burden upon us that we cannot bear. Jesus is God’s only Son, and He alone can bear the weight of sin. The good news is that Jesus did bear that weight for us on the Cross.
Welcome! Our mission is to glorify the risen Christ and His Cross and to declare His glory to all nations. If you have never repented of your sins and trusted Christ by faith, that is the very first step. But you need more than that, just like a baby needs more than to be born; you need to be in a place to grow and mature as a healthy Christian believer. To help you do that, our services begin Sunday with Care Groups at 9:45 am, followed by our Worship Service at 11am. Midweek services are every Wednesday night at 7pm.

We have a Cross-Centered Christ-Exalting focus. We exist to know, enjoy, and to display the Glory of the risen Christ and His Cross; and to declare His Glory to all nations (Gal 6:14; Eph 3:9–10); this means loving God, each other, and the lost people of the world who don’t know Jesus and His work.
We desire to be a local church with a similar devotion to that of the early Church as written in Acts 2:42 including devotion to the Apostle’s teaching (preaching and Bible Study), the fellowship (sharing), the breaking of bread (including the Lord’s Supper), and the prayers, to the end that souls may be saved, baptized, added to the church, and mobilized for missions to promote the worship of God throughout the world.
