We want to be a deeply connected & unified body of believers, who intimately know & passionately seek God,
intentionally share the love of Christ & actively serve using our spiritual gifts.

Our Heart is to connect people to God. From the music to the message, we hope you genuinely experience the love of God.
This is a safe place for everyone to experience faith & community – no church experience required.
It is a place to be yourself, grow spiritually, build friendships & make a difference locally & globally.
Everyone is welcome here whatever your story, questions, doubts, or struggles.
We don’t pretend to have all the answers, but we believe in a God who does.
