Leading people to experience the fullness of LIFE in Christ.
Ephesians 3:14-19; John 10:10
It is our desire to see people exchange what the world teaches about a “full” life for what Christ offers them – love, purpose, forgiveness, peace, joy, abundance and the fullness of God.
God’s Word – The Bible is God’s Holy Word. It is the authority for life. Psalm 119:16, 89, 105; Col. 3:16
Authentic Friendships – We don’t just want to live in a town of friends, we want to be friends to all people and live life together. Proverbs 17:17; John 15:13; Acts 2:42, 46-47
Generous Living – Using our talents, our time and our resources to bless others. Living with an attitude of giving. 2 Corinthians 8:1-7; 9:6-12; Mark 10:45
Community Impact – Helping our neighbors, our cities, our state, our nation and our world become better places because of the influence of our people. 1 Peter 2:9-12; Matthew 5:13-16; Acts 2:42-47
Each church is unique and God has called each local body of believers to carry out the mission in tangible ways. As we lead people to experience the fullness of life in Christ, these are tools to help them become more like Christ.
Worship – The majesty and holiness of God call for us to honor and praise his name. We must declare His worth and works both individually and as a community of faith. Psalm 96:1-9
Connect – Following Jesus is done in community. We want to connect with each other so that we may spur one another on in faith and life. Colossians 3:12-17
Invest – We have a responsibility to invest in our spiritual development and the church partners with us and our families to become more like Christ. Ephesians 4:11-16; 2 Peter 3:14-18
Serve – The reward for service is more service! We want to model Jesus – He came not to be served, but to serve. Mark 10:45; Galatians 5:13, 6:9

On your first visit to anywhere, it's common to feel slightly apprehensive. How long will it take to get there? Where will we park? What should we expect? How long will we be there? Let us set your mind at ease! Here are some suggestions before your first visit...
Before you Visit on Sunday Morning
First, choose a service to attend
We understand that people love choices in worship. So we offer two unique styles of worship services. Our goal in worship: to create an environment filled with celebration and power. In other words ..... worship that's simply irresistible because the One we worship is All-Powerful and the Only One worthy of our worship.
Blended Service beginning at 9:30am
The Common Ground service is an exciting worship experience. It is more reflective in nature and is designed for those who desire a more blended worship experience. While we do use the praise team and contemporary choruses during this service, our worship leader, Dr. Bill Tharp, will incorporate many of your favorite hymns to provide a bit more "blended" flavor to this service.
Contemporary Service beginning at 11:00am
The Downpour service is more celebratory in nature and is designed for those who enjoy modern worship styles. This service includes drama and multimedia, and is great for those who enjoy a more energetic atmosphere. Our worship leader, Matt Parker and the band, leads us with a great blend of modern worship choruses and hymns.
Second, choose a Bible Study class to attend
Choose a class from the 9:30am or 11:00am hour. Click here to for class schedules and details.
Print directions and a map to our church. Guest parking is located on the east side of the campus. Follow the "Welcome Guests" signs along the campus perimeter and they will lead you to guest parking.
Once you arrive, greeters will be readily available to help you and your family get settled in for an exciting morning. Our Welcome team members will assist you in finding a Bible Study class for every member of your family. Visitor registration is located in the FLC or building B. Activities are provided for children ages birth through 6th grade for two hours, giving you the ability to attend both Worship and Bible Study. Be sure to grab something to drink, a donut, and information about our campus. During the worship service, we want you to feel comfortable and "right at home".
What to expect during the Service
We do not point out our guests or ask you to stand. During the Worship Services, you will be given an opportunity to complete a guest's information card. This will allow us to thank you for your visit and to express our love to you as a Christian community. We encourage you to stop by the Information table in the Lobby following the service if you have any questions about the church or our ministries.
