Our worship is modern traditional
We combine the richness of the deep roots of Christianity with elements that speak to future generations.

Our Worship is Missional
Worship is an action that transforms. Isaiah 6 offers an encounter with the Lord where the prophet is fundamentally changed forever. We want to transform individuals and communities through our worship. Leaving worship means being sent into the mission field as an agent of Jesus Christ.
