OUR MISSION

What We Believe God Has Called Us to Do

Helping our children come to KNOW Jesus Christ, GROW to be like Him, and GO serve Him. 

Specifically, we believe that God has called us, in partnership with parents, to help our children:

  • KNOW the Word of God deeply and the Lord Jesus personally
  • GROW to be like Jesus together and 
  • GO serve Him in their homes, church, school and community.
