Ephesians 2:19-20 - "Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone."
Our Mission is to live in a Ephesians 2:19-20 posture, so that Jesus Christ is the center of the life of this church, inviting all people into a loving relationship with god and authentic friendship with one another
