Our Mission

Loving, Sharing, Serving, Reaching Through the Word of Christ

In this Church community, you will find people loving God and each other. We share our spiritual gifts, our financial gifts, and the gift of our presence with each other. Through different worship services and many ministries and programs, we love to serve. We do not just serve the people who come into the Church buildings; we go out in to the world, to reach the arms of Jesus' love, to everyone in Morehead City, North Carolina, and even outside of the country! Our lofty mission is grounded and founded in the Word of Christ.
