We Are

Followers of Jesus like other Christian believers.  Jesus is our Lord, our Savior and our Example.

A Peace Church like Quakers and Mennonites. We choose Jesus' way of peace and reconciliation.

Anabaptist like Mennonites, German Baptists and Amish.  We want our life together to demonstrate God's kingdom by emulating the simple pattern of the New Testament church.

Pietist like Methodists and Moravians. We seek to understand the bible together with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and we look for personal experiences of Jesus and His forgiveness to produce in us a new way of living.
