"Agape" is pronounced "ah-GAH-pay." It is one of several Greek words that is translated into English as "love." Distinct from phileo, storge, and eros, agape particularly refers to unconditional and selfless love. The essence of agape love is selfless, goodwill, benevolence, and willful delight in the object of love. Agape love is the kind of love that God gives us. It is also the love that we are called to experience and to share.

Who We Are

Agape is a place to experience God’s love and His transforming power. Church is a "home" where we are re-parented by God in a loving community that upholds truth. In this church family, we grow together through vibrant worship, genuine relationships, studies in God’s word, prayer, discipleship training, service, local evangelism and world mission. We believe in having an authentic faith, based on the lordship of Jesus Christ, the authority of the Scriptures, and the love of the Church. We want the reality of Jesus Christ to be evident in the lives of our members through the fruit of the Spirit and the gifts of the Spirit. We equip believers to carry God's presence into their spheres of influence to create more "homes" with the trademark of agape love.

Visit us to find out more about this church family. We hope you'll find Agape to be "a place to call "home."
We love because he first loved us. (1 John 4:19)
