     Vision   |   Meet the Staff  


Our Purpose

Our goal is to clear a path that leads to the one true God by eliminating objections along the way.  Our hope is to allow the seeker to travel down the path of evidence and reason, and -- by embracing the guiding light of faith -- step into the presences of Jesus Christ to accept the free gift of salvation.


Of equal and vital importance, is our purpose to equip Christians to know what they believe, why they believe it, and how to communicate their beliefs with both gentleness and respect.  "But in your hearts revere Christ as Lord.  Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.  But do this with gentleness and respect" (1 Peter 3:15).
