“Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. A primary path to such discipleship is to walk with Christ to the cross and beyond.”

Central to the Christian faith is a conviction that we cannot get to Easter except through the cross. We have crosses on our altars for a reason! The Apostle Paul put it bluntly: “When I came to you, brothers and sisters, I didn’t come preaching God’s secrets to you like I was an expert in speech or wisdom. I had made up my mind not to think about anything while I was with you except Jesus Christ, and to preach him as crucified.”
(1 Corinthians 2:1-2)
