Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly (John 10:10). He came not to point out our faults or make us feel guilty and condemned but to save, to redeem, to restore and to reconcile us to a loving Heavenly Father so that “whoever believes in Him (Jesus) should not perish but have everlasting life”
We are a church that is passionately all about Jesus and this is reflected in the upbeat, youthful and bright style of our services. Our church is not about a list of do’s and don’ts, rules and regulations or religious legalism. Instead our desire is simply to connect people to Jesus so they can discover firsthand the freedom that comes from a deep and lasting relationship with Christ. No matter who you are or where you come from, there’s always a place for you in our church family. Just come as you are, be refreshed and receive!
