OUR MISSION

At Messiah, our mission is to be a place where hard questions can be asked, the healing power of love experienced and the joy of worship celebrated. We believe that God is made known in the world through our relationships with each other . . . the true connections of real people in real life. We are on a journey that we invite you to join, knowing that we will be changed by your presence. We welcome that chance to know you and to love you. And together to live Jesus’ commandment to not be afraid.
