In the late summer of 2003, a small group of people began to get excited about the dream of planting a new church in the Longview-Kelso area. With a common passion for Jesus Christ and a common desire to share His gospel of faith, hope, and love, we began to take small steps toward that dream. As we did so, we found God already there ahead of us, leading the way and opening doors for us to pass. Others began to come alongside, some encouraging us and others feeling called to join us. So, here we are, together embarking on a faith journey, excited and challenged and often overwhelmed ... but mostly feeling a deep sense of gratitude that God loves us and an awareness of the immeasurable privilege of being asked to serve Him.
