/// what we believe
We are a youth church that believes in teenagers and thinks they are uniquely gifted to change the world in ways that no one else can! We are committed to giving teenagers an environment where they can not only connect with each other in community and relationship, but where they can also meet God in a real and powerful way and live out who He is in their life in a bold, unashamed, and practical way.
/// key verses
