Life Groups

Life Groups (formerly known as small groups) are a great opportunity to meet new people, connect, and develop close relationships with people you can trust. They are designed to create an environment where you can be challenged and grow. Life Groups meet at many different times and locations in the area. We look forward to helping you connect today.

Kids | Birth – 5th Grade




Our elementary and preschool environments allow your child to learn at their level. Each week our kids participate in worship, games, activities, and a Bible story geared just for them.

In our nursery, our volunteers will care for your little one, so that you can enjoy the worship service without interruption. Upon check-in, you will be given a pager, in case your child needs you during the service.

Students | 6th-12th Grade


For the summer months of June, July, & August, Frontline Middle and High school will be combining on Sundays from 6-8 PM in the gym.


Frontline is a place for students to find Jesus Christ and grow in their relationship with Him. We incorporate intentional relational time, exciting interactive games, a live worship experience, a relevant message, and thriving small groups. We encourage students to connect with each other as they grow in and connect with God together.

What We Believe

The Bible to be the only inspired, infallible, and authoritative Word of God.
(John 16:13; 2 Timothy 3:15-17; 2 Peter 1:21; 1 Thessalonians 2:13)
That there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
(Deuteronomy 6:4; Isaiah 43:10-11; Matthew 28:18; Luke 3:22; John 14:16)

In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ,
(John 1:1, 14, 20:28-29; Philippians 2:6-11; Isaiah 9:6; Colossians 2:9)

His virgin birth, (Matthew 1:18; Luke 1:34-35; Isaiah 7:14)
His sinless life, (2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15; 7:26-27; 1 John 3:5; 1 Peter 2:22)
His miracles, (Matthew 4:23; Luke 6:17-19; John 3:2)
His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, (Colossians 1:14, 20; Romans 5:8-9; Ephesians 1:7)
His bodily resurrection, (1 Corinthians 15:3-4; Luke 24:4-7, 36-48; Revelation 1:17-18)
His ascension to the right hand of the Father, (Acts 2:23, 5:30-31l; 1 Peter 3:22)
His personal return in power and in glory, (Acts 1:11; Philippians 2:9-11; 1 Thessalonians 1:10, 4:13-18; John 14:1-3)
That justification by faith in the atonement of Jesus Christ and regeneration by the Holy Spirit are absolutely essential for the salvation of lost and sinful man. Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, by grace according to the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, a person becomes an heir of God according to the hope of eternal life.
(Romans 3:24-15; Romans 10:19-15; John 3:3-7; 1 John 5:11-13; Ephesians 2:1-16; Titus 2:11-14, 3:5-7; Revelation 5:9; Acts 4:23; 1 Corinthians 6:11)

We believe that the prime agency for the work of God’s Kingdom is the local church functioning under the sovereignty of our Lord Jesus Christ. To the church have been entrusted the ordinances of Believer’s Baptism and the Lord’s Supper.
(Acts 2:41-47, 16:4-5; Matthew 16:18, 28:18-20; Ephesians 1:22-23; 1 Corinthians 12:1; 1 Corinthians 11:23-26)

In the present ministry of the Holy Spirit, which includes His ongoing and consistent indwelling in the life of a believer–an utterly submitted and surrendered believer is thereby transformed to live a Godly life; the Holy Spirit’s supernatural gifting and empowering of the believer toward the edification of the church for its work, life and worship.
(Luke 24:49; Acts 1:4-8; Acts 2:1-4; Acts 4:29-32; Acts 8-10; Acts 19; 1 Corinthians 12-14; Ephesians 1:13-14; Ephesians 5:18; John 3:1-8; John 7:37-39; John 15)

That divine physical, mental, spiritual and emotional healing is sovereignly provided by God through the stripes that Christ bore. Praying for the sick is included in the Great Commission and it is the duty of the church to provide the same.
(Isaiah 53:4-5; Matthew 8:16-17; Mark 16:18; 1 Peter 2:24; James 5:14)

In the blessed hope, the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in Christ and their translation together with those who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord.
(John 5:28-29; 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17; 2 Thessalonians 1:2-10; Titus 2:13)

In the return of Jesus Christ, to consummate His Kingdom in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost; those who are saved unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost unto the resurrection of damnation.
(Mark 14:62; Romans 8:23; 1 Corinthians 15:51-52; Revelation 1:5-7; 20:4-5, 11-2)

In the final judgment in which the wicked and dead will be raised and judged according to their works. Whoever is not found written in the Book of Life, together with the Devil and his angels, the beast, and the false prophet, will be consigned to everlasting punishment in the lake of fire which is the second death.
(Matthew 25:46; Mark 9:43-48; Revelation 19:20; 20:10-15, 21:8)

In the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ.
(John 17:11, 21-23; Romans 12:4-5; Ephesians 4:11-16)
