Leading you to a life-changing relationship with Jesus as you follow Him.
To carry the hope and purpose of Jesus to those far from God with our experiences, gifts, and, resources.
We’re dreaming a God sized dream! A church growing exponentially! A thriving, prayer-filled, multicultural church known as a centre for excellent worship with the supernatural move of God over multiple services.
We dream of a highly engaged, vibrant, multi-generational church with a spirit of excellence where children are embraced and equipped in the present.
We’re dreaming of a hub for ministry training for the next generation, a centre to meet community needs, and a sending church to equip people for missions and church planting! We believe this is God’s dream for us!
