“This church exists for the glory of God. We believe that we are made expressly to be in a relationship with Him and to recognize Jesus of Nazareth as our Lord and Savior. We strive to bring God glory through singing and praying together, hearing His Word preached, loving Him, and loving one another. We are an evangelical community of believers in a needy environment.” –Pastor Mark Dever
