About Us

Changing Lives through Jesus Christ

Transformed by God’s love, grace and forgiveness, we seek to transform the world by caring for others.

We believe God loves us all as we are, and also loves us enough not to leave us there alone.

We welcome questions and doubts without judgment as we strive to experience our faith, not just talk about it.
