Biblical LEADERSHIP

Making Disciples is the commission for the whole church.  God gave us team of pastors to set vision, lead, and equip the saints for the work to which God has called us and empowered us.  He has also given us a team of deacons to serve in caring for the needs of the congregation. 

Gospel is Jesus ruled, pastor led, and congregationally accountable.
