our mission

We are great church with a passion to love and to serve God. We have a simple mission: We love God, value people, grow in our gifts and reach out to our community and to the world. In other words, We love God and We Love People.

We believe that Jesus the Christ has changed our lives through His death and resurrection and has given us purpose. We concentrate on four important areas:

1. Worship - We passionately show our love for God in our worship gatherings. We express our worship through music, dance and the preaching of the scriptures.

2. Spiritual Community – We work on building meaning friendships through small groups and ministries. We also show care for all people who are made in the image of God. Our goal is to bring genuine help and change to our church community and to all of Cape May County.

3. Personal Growth – We believe life with Christ is a journey in which we are always growing and learning. We believe the Holy Spirit and the scriptures bring daily change to our lives. Our ministries help in this process.

4. Outreach – We have a vision to bring genuine change to Cape May County and to the world. Our encounter with Christ has changed our lives and we want all to experience the joy of the “Good News”.
