“People empowering people and communities in all areas of life to the glory of God”. Our foresight is to be that of an Impact Center. We recognize it is not about us. God can never fully bless us until we take our eyes off ourselves and begin to place them upon God, His kingdom and other people. Simply put we are called to preach the gospel; to teach people to live Christ-like; to practice love; to give priority to prayer; to increase in the wisdom and favor of God; to fulfill purpose and to enjoy God.

We affirm our belief in the one-eternal God, Creator and Lord of the world, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who governs all things according to the purpose of his will. He has been calling out from the world a people for himself, and sending his people back into the world to be his servants and his witnesses, for the extension of his kingdom, the building up of Christ’s body, and the glory of his name. We confess with shame that we have often denied our calling and failed in our mission, by becoming conformed to the world or by withdrawing from it. Yet we rejoice that even when borne by earthen vessels the gospel is still a precious treasure. To the task of making that treasure known in the power of the Holy Spirit we desire to dedicate ourselves anew.
