Loving Others  |  Making Disciples  |  Glorifying God

  

Our Ministry Vision

What We Aspire to Be

Our Great Commandment

We are a family of believers in Jesus Christ committed to loving God with all our being and loving others as Christ loved us by giving of ourselves, without favoritism or hypocrisy, according to God’s Word. (Matthew 22:34–39; Romans 12:9; James 2:1–10; I John 4:20–21)

Our Great Commission

We are ambassadors, calling sinners to be reconciled to God by proclaiming Jesus Christ in all the world, making disciples who grow in knowing him, becoming like him, and sharing about him. (Matthew 28:19–20; 2 Corinthians 5:17–21; Colossians 1:28–29)

Our Great Commitment

We are united in glorifying God in all we do, as we live worthy of His calling to speak and serve so that we bear much fruit. (John 15:1–11; 1 Corinthians 10:31; I Thessalonians 2:1–12; I Peter 4:10–11)

 

Our Core Values

What Drives Us

Biblical Teaching

In our church, we value sound doctrine drawn from God’s Word and faithfully taught in a manner which guides us to live in a Christlike way. (Acts 20:25–32; 1 Timothy 4:6; 2 Timothy 3:16–4:5; Titus 2)

Worship

In our church, we value a lifestyle of worship in every aspect of living. We emphasize faithfully worshipping the Creator rather than worshipping any created possession or experience (Romans 1:25; 1 John 5:20–21). Such worship entails delighting in God (Psalm 16), lamenting through trial (Psalm 13), and praying with dependence (Philippians 4:4–7).

Family

In our church, we value the family as God originally designed it to image him and perpetually teach the faith to new generations (Genesis 1–2; Deuteronomy 6:4–9; Ephesians 5:21–6:4). Furthermore, we also value the local church as the household of God (Mark 3:35; Galatians 6:10; Ephesians 2:19; 1 Timothy 3:14–15) where we intentionally love, support, and invest in one another’s lives for growth in Christlikeness (1 Thessalonians 2:7, 11; 1 Timothy 5:1–2; James 2:14–17).

Integrity

In our church, we value an ongoing sincere pursuit of Christlike character in both our private and public lives before God based upon biblical teaching in holiness, humility, and honesty. (Psalm 119:80; Proverbs 4:23; Matthew 7:1–5; 13:33–37; 1 Peter 1:15–16)

Serving

In our church, we value involving God’s people in His service. While recognizing the necessity for times of rest, we faithfully encourage and equip each one to steward the diverse gifts of God for His glory and the good of the church. (Ephesians 4:11–16; 1 Peter 4:7–11)

Accountability

In our church, we value both individual and corporate accountability to Christ and one another. We encourage biblical spiritual discipline as we walk together in truth and love. (2 Corinthians 5:9–10; Ephesians 4:1–3; Hebrews 13:17)

 

Our Distinctives

What We Commit to Practice

Expository Preaching

In our church, we are committed to corporately preaching the Bible in an expository way. In our worship services we intentionally preach the text of Scripture, drawing out its original meaning and proclaiming it as God’s authoritative and sufficient Word for us today. (2 Timothy 3:16–4:2; Titus 2:1)

Biblical Literacy

In our church, we are committed to constantly teaching the Scriptures to all ages in the classroom and other settings. We see the need to develop our ability to think biblically so that we might flourish in our relationships with God and one another and have a solid foundation for sanctification. (Hebrews 5:12–14; 2 Timothy 3:14–15)

Biblical Counseling

In our church, we are committed to continually developing formal and informal help for the problems we face. We strive to build this upon a biblical foundation, not man’s wisdom or theories, and to help in such a way as to competently address the need of the moment. (1 Corinthians 2:12–16; 1 Thessalonians 5:14)

Shepherd Leadership

In our church, we are committed to humbly and lovingly leading our people through a plurality of qualified elders who shepherd God’s flock among them with integrity and are assisted by qualified deacons. (1 Peter 5:1–3; 1 Timothy 3:1–13)

Congregational Singing

In our church, we are committed to teaching and admonishing one another through singing God’s praise. We use classic and modern songs that are written for a congregation to sing, and we intentionally lead them accordingly. (Ephesians 5:18–21; Colossians 3:16–17)
