Welcome To Our Website!

We are a congregation that is seeking to follow in Jesus’ footsteps as we love God and our neighbors in word and deed. We understand that in order to accomplish that goal, we need to read and study the Bible and spend time in prayer every day, support various missions through donations and active participation, and work for justice for the oppressed.


Our founder, John Wesley once said, “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”


We believe that this should be our response to God’s gracious gift of love to us. We invite you to join in our journey as we seek to be more loving every day.


Our congregation exists to exemplify by word and deed the love of Jesus Christ to all people and, specifically, to our community through loving relationships.
