Our Mission

Our mission is simple; we want to ‘Connect Together’ for life! By connecting people together with Christ and each other!  We define our mission through scripture and specifically, Romans 6:5, “For if we have been joined together in the likeness of His death, we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection.” Through this verse we believe that we can be better followers of Christ, and be a better family to those in Christ by connecting together in Worship, in Faith, in Others, and in L.I.F.E.  We do that by living L.I.F.E. – Love implementing, and Faith Engaging, so come connect with others who want to  live L.I.F.E. together as we worship our Savior and Lord, Jesus Christ.  


Pastoral Staff:

Our pastor and his team recognize the authority of God, and realize the need to serve the church as Jesus Christ taught. They are devoted to prayer, worship, and rightly dividing the Word. Their passion and goal is to equip the believers for the work of ministry and to bring them to a fuller and closer relationship with the Lord.

As the senior  pastor, Dr. Chris has a passion for carefully unpacking the truths of Scripture. He has been serving Union Baptist since 2009. He is man who has a heart for the people of God.
