ABOUT US

About Us
Compassion

We are a community of believers. What does the phrase "Community Together" mean?  We believe that together in fellowship we grow closer to God and one another. The bible speaks about iron sharpening iron. We believe that together we grow stronger. 


We believe the King James version of the Bible is the inspired word of God.  We believe in the Virgin birth, the death burial and resurrection of Christ.  We believe there is only one way to heaven, and that is accepting the free gift of salvation, provided by the atoning blood of Jesus Christ, on the cross of Calvary.


We strive to be a church without walls. Jesus calls for us to go outside the walls to reach the lost and the broken. It is there that the lost will be found. Some churches find it is comfortable to stay within the walls, but we make it an effort to be like the church from the book of Acts, to see our city changed.


We highly value our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God. We value the word of God, and the leadership of the Holy Spirit. We look to extend grace to all the lost and broken, and lead those with no hope to the hope of Jesus Christ.

OUR VALUES

We highly value our relationships with one another. We look to grow through fellowship, and ultimately growing closer to God.
