About My Church Plant

Our Vision: Know God. Love Others. Serve the Community.

We search Scripture to know God and discover the truth that sets us free. We desire to couple truth with grace that we might also introduce non-believers, or re-introduce de-churched believers, to this same God.

We love others through small groups where believers and non-believers can grow in their understanding and application of God’s direction in their lives. We value authentic relationships in what we call community groups.

We serve our community by living the way of Jesus in front of the audience God has given us. Our hope is they see Jesus in us, hear us speak of Him often and ultimately be drawn to a relationship with Him.

We desire to be a church that plants churches that plant churches. Ultimately, we’d love to see many new churches spring out of the Net Community.

NAMB Church Planting

Demonstrated Christian character is essential for missionaries and chaplains to gain credibility and build community. A missionary is a person who, in response to God's call and gifting, leaves his or her comfort zone and crosses cultural, geographic or other barriers to proclaim the gospel and live out a Christian witness in obedience to the Great Commission. The North American Mission Board supports missionaries serving across the United States, Canada and their territories. Churches are the missionary incubators and sending centers for missionaries through the Southern Baptist Convention. Missionaries serve in a variety of settings and face tremendous challenges. But the rewards are tremendous and life-changing. Missionaries have the privilege to represent their church and their Father in sharing the gospel as the primary focus of their activity. If you are interested in pursuing next steps as a potential missionary or chaplain from your church, explore the possibilities at


Pray that God’s favor upon Net Community continues. We have seen approximately 40 salvations and 45 baptisms since September 2016. Pray people continue responding to the gospel and God continues to draw the laborers for the harvest.


We need partners in every area. Contact for more information on how to get involved.
Many missionaries build a team to join their ministry in prayer, participation, and provision. These friends, family and churches support missionaries beyond the tithes and offerings given within the church plant. Visit for NAMB's policy on providing for church plants.
