Jesus Christ and the gospel are at the center of everything we do. We take the Bible seriously as our only rule of faith and practice as we seek to preach it fervently and obey it faithfully.

    We currently have three elders in their sixties, and we are seeking a young pastor to join our team and continue the work.

He must lead the church to stand on the truths of the Scriptures regardless of the consequences.
