Vision

We seek to be a family of faith, loving God and others, and making disciples.

God is our source, our focus, and our greatest joy. In response to knowing Him, we are together committed to growing more like Jesus Christ and going to all the world, empowered by the Holy Spirit.

Identity

We embrace the community and accountability that come with being part of a broader community of faith, the Brethren in Christ Church (BIC). Learn more about the BIC U.S.
