Our mission is to bring God’s Word to today’s young culture in a relevant fresh and clear way. In today’s culture the pressure of dealing with choices and peer related decisions has become a dominating force. Just reading scripture is not the answer. Application is needed. The language is different. The problems more urgent. The environment more threatening. The main emphasis is placed on living your faith, peer pressure, finding your support group and decision making.

“Seekers of Truth” : The “Seekers” is for young adults through seniors who “hunger and thirst” for the truth that is God’s Holy Word. We seek in the Word the truth that is Jesus Christ with a longing to know the Father through the Son. We study and pray knowing that God has a plan for us in His plan to restore the Kingdom, that His will be done, “on earth as it is in Heaven.” We invite all who seek to go beyond comfort to fellowship with us as we explore Christ’s command to “Repent, for theKingdom of God is at hand.” We seek to surrender to God, trust in His love and resist the temptation to “conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of [our] minds.” (Romans 12: 1,2)
