We are a family of churches committed to the sovereignty of God and obedience to His Word. We believe in the preeminence of Christ and seek to put Him first in all we do. We believe that the building of kingdom churches takes place through the power and presence of the Holy Spirit. We exist to equip the churches to be on mission for Him and the networking of churches in order that His kingdom is advanced.
Our mission is three fold: Start new churches and ministries to advance the Kingdom; Strengthen churches through revitalization; Sustain churches through leadership development and partnerships.
