The Church

God’s Family

The church is not a building, nor is it an event – it is God’s people living, celebrating, and growing together. As individuals, church helps us to grow in God and to fulfill His plan for our lives. As we focus on others, the church is also God’s way of reaching out to the lost and building His Kingdom.
