Our Mission is to deeply connect people to Jesus, people, and mission.

Our mission statement lies behind everything we do as a church, from Children’s Ministries to Sunday mornings to Compton Clean Up days. We can’t think of anything more important than a life giving connection to Jesus that results in deeper relationships with other people and whole-hearted devotion to God’s mission in this world. What it comes down to is thinking, talking and acting more and more like Jesus and intentionally helping others to do the same. That’s what we’re all about, and it’s our perspective of what it means to be followers of Jesus.
