Our Purpose Our purpose is to magnify God in worship by bringing people to Jesus and membership in His family, to build them to Christ-like maturity, and to equip them for ministry in the church and send them on mission in the world.
Dr. Wayne Moore, Senior Pastor
Hi, I’m pastor Wayne and this is my wife Jan. We’ve been married for 35 years and we have three children and three grandchildren. I’ve been in ministry since 1996 and have pastored churches in both Florida and North Carolina.
You could say that I’m a people person because I enjoy hanging out with people and getting to know them. I love to laugh and enjoy the joy of my salvation. As a pastor my goal is to lead the church in evangelism, missions, and a deeper spiritual walk by way of strong expository preaching, sound Biblical teaching, and personal example.

Philosophy of Ministry
I am committed to the call for obedience to Christ (John 14:23), to prayer (Jeremiah 33:3), to the study of Scripture (Joshua 1:8), to feed the church on His Word (John 21:17), and to the inerrancy of Scripture (2 Timothy 3:16).
My Life Verse
1 Corinthians 15:58: Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
