We are a group of Regenerated Believers, who seek to win those that are lost and to bring discipleship to those that have been found. Our purpose is to impact them so they might impact the world for Christ. We believe this is done through our core beliefs: the Word of God, the Worship of God, and the Fellowship amongst Believers.
