Welcome to The Tyger.
Our vision is simple and relative.

GATHER - GROW - GO!

We GATHER to worship as a body of believers. We GROW as a fellowship through Bible Study to enable us to GO into our community, nation, and world to share the love of Jesus.

Grace and Peace of God

Progressive Christianity

Rambling through the “theology” file recently, I came across these “Ten Commandments” of faith by a colleague, Landon Whitsitt—while the Trinity and Jesus’ life, death, resurrection make Christianity unique, I like the more inclusive, graceful way Landon expresses his faith. These are adapted from “Open Source Church”. Good perspective for a world that seems religiously […]

Peace is also God’s “promise”—“For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; […]
