Music Style

Our aim is to sing songs rich with the Gospel. We sing some that are new and some that are old. Overall, we have a more contemporary feel.

Preaching Style

Our primary method of preaching is verse by verse through books of the Bible. The point of the sermon will be the point of the passage before us that particular morning. We believe this is of utmost importance since God promises to work through His Word.
