About Surety Community Church:


At Surety Community Church we believe that God gave the Church a simple but yet daunting challenge, “To go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.” The greatest need of those around us is the need of salvation. Each person needs a relationship with Christ, one that is growing and maturing. Through the avenues of Biblical preaching, evangelism, missions, involvement, home groups, exciting worship services, children’s and youth ministries and fellowship we seek to fulfill the Great Commission to make disciples of all nations.
