about us


We are a growing multiethnic family seeking to love God, each other, and the World's people.

Ours is a rich heritage of faithful community service, ministry, and following Jesus for 139 years with a vision to be fresh and relevant!  Our purpose is to get closer to God and each other. Our focus is on strengthening relationships, not on religious practices or rituals.


We place a priority on worshipping God, our creator and Jesus, God's Son through the Holy Spirit, which can be an awesome experience.  


We offer learning and growing opportunities for people of all ages, and are committed to being lifelong learners.  We love children, and offer a caring, quality experience for Sunday School at 9:45 am.  A discussion class for adults starts at 9:45 am.


We are a Christ-centered church, which means that we focus on the good news that God loves us and sent us Jesus to save us from our selfishness and wrongs and gives us an abundant life.  Through a personal and meaningful relationship with Jesus, we experience the incomprehensible peace, unspeakable joy, unlimited hope, and unconditional love of God.


We are an American Baptist Church, which is a nationwide network of churches that are radically committed to Jesus and involved in ministries of spiritual renewal, witness, social justice, and ecology.  The American Baptist Churches-USA is the second largest Baptist denomination in this country.  Women have been ordained to pastoral ministry by our denomination for more than 100 years.
