GOD'S STORY:

THE BIBLE

Why it matters

"Jesus tells us to make disciples. A disciple is someone who wants to know God and learn from Him. We want you to know how much God loves you and we are committed to help you grow spiritually. Come join us.”

 

- John Kasay

Your faith in Jesus is way bigger than just attending church on Sunday. It is an active, growing, deepening journey of discipleship. And we want to give you the tools to help you thrive.
