Upholding the Supremacy & Sufficiency of Scripture
We are committed to believing, following, and proclaiming the full counsel of God as found in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, which we firmly believe is without error and sufficient to guide us in all matters of faith and practice. We believe truth is timeless and the Bible is relevant to people of all cultures and generations without needing to be manipulated, added to, or reinterpreted.
Preaching in an Expository Manner
Our pastor preaches through books of the Bible, verse-by-verse (though occasionally he also preaches on a requested Scripture or on a holiday such as Resurrection Sunday). Each week he strives to make the points of the Biblical text the points of the sermon. We are convinced that what people need is the Word of God, not the pastor's opinion or a few life tips. Since Christ is Lord and King, we believe that preaching and ministry should not be merely based on God's Word, but ruled by God's Word. For, "all Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work." (2 Timothy 3:16-17)
Cherishing the Doctrines of Grace
In accordance with the Bible, we teach that salvation is a sovereign work of the Triune God, in which He takes a sinner, dead in their trespasses and sins, and transfers them from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of His beloved Son.
Practicing Family Integration
We welcome and encourage families with children of all ages to attend the worship service together. We believe that this is the pattern laid out in Scripture, as opposed to separating families into groups based on age when they walk through the church doors. Family integration helps fortify and strengthen family relationships and allows fathers and mothers to function as the shepherds of their children, as God intended. We offer a "mother's room" where mothers are welcome to sit with their little ones when needed and still hear the service.
Growing in Holiness
Not to earn our salvation, but out of love towards the One who bought us with His blood, we believe that by the grace of God and through the power of the Holy Spirit there will be evidence in the believer's life that he or she has been born again. The Christian should be ever-increasingly growing in holiness (as defined in Scripture, not man-made rules) while decreasing in worldliness.
