next steps


We all start somewhere. It’s not always easy, but it always starts with taking a step forward. 

Your next step may involve a brand new relationship with God. Or perhaps it's learning to

know, love, and serve God at a whole new level. Wherever you are in your journey,

we want to come alongside you to encourage and enable you to embrace the faith, 

hope, and love that God has always destined for you to live in.


A public declaration of your faith in Jesus Christ, water baptism is an essential step in your spiritual journey. 

We host a special Baptism class explaining it all for you to attend prior to taking the plunge.
