Our Focus

Our focus this conference year is "Equipping God's People for God's Work."  We will continue to Teach God's Word, Fellowship Beyond Ourselves, Worship God in Spirit and Truth, and Evangelize to tell others about the love and good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Our Operative scripture is Ephesians 4:11-16: "The gifts he gave were that some would be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, to equip the saints, for the work of ministry, for the building up of the Body of Christ, until all of us come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the full stature of Christ."

To learn more about our focus as a christ-centered church view our Vision Statement.
