The purpose of this congregation is to give visible form to that faith and fellowship to which God has called his people. We acknowledge ourselves to be a local manifestation of the universal church in and through which Jesus Christ continues to minister to the world by his Holy Spirit. We shall seek to fulfill this calling through corporate worship service, through a program of Christian nurture by which our members may be built up in their faith and love, through proclamation of the gospel by word and deed, and through ministering to human need in the name of Christ.
