Four Pillars of Purpose

We are a People committed to Worship

“Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”
Psalm 29:2 (KJV)

We are a People committed to Discipleship

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”
Matthew 28:19-20 (KJV)

We are a People committed to Benevolence

“A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another.
By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
John 13:34-35 (KJV)

We are a People committed to Outreach

“For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.”
Matthew 25:35-36 (KJV)

Our Mission is to be a church led by the Spirit of God; proclaiming and teaching to all the word of God; laboring in our community to advance the kingdom of God; living into eternity to the Glory of God.

We Believe

That God is Triune—three Persons, one Being—
God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit.

That Jesus is the only begotten Son of the Father,
at once fully human and fully divine.

That the Bible is the holy and inspired word of God.

That Jesus lived, died and lives again, and now
mediates for us in the presence of the Father.

That Jesus’ death on Calvary’s Cross
provides divine atonement for Human sin.

That whosoever believes in Jesus Christ shall be saved.

That Jesus is coming back, at a time not known by humanity,
for the Church of faithful believers.
