We seek to exalt Christ in His greatness and majesty. Man’s preoccupation with himself is the root of sin and has no place in the Church. Christ’s exaltation and not man’s personal success is our primary focus.
We are committed to the inspiration, inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture. The Scriptures, in conjunction with the Holy Spirit and the care of the church body, are sufficient for growth and every spiritual and emotional problem. The integration of the concepts and techniques of secular psychology is unnecessary and, in the end, unfruitful.
Preaching and Teaching
We are committed to preaching and teaching the Bible. It brings the authority of God and the proven principles of Scripture to bear in the believer’s life. The command to preach the Word in the light of Christ’s appearing is kept foremost in our ministry. We seek to preach and teach the great doctrines of Scripture; including the doctrine of God, the doctrines of grace, Christ, and others.
Christ’s mandate to make disciples is the focal point of all we do. A discipleship emphasis and thrust is regularly given to encourage and enlist believers to pursue disciple making in their lives.
Marriage and Family
We are committed to the Biblical pattern for marriage and the family. The Scriptural standards for the husband, wife and child rearing are given regular emphasis and priority. We believe the key to the church is the family, the key to the family is the marriage, and the key to the marriage is the husband and father.
Every believer a minister is our goal. The equipping of the saints for ministry and the operation of every believer’s gift is our priority. We are committed to the mutuality of ministry in the body.
We seek to make our services a vital and real experience in the worship and praise of God. We seek first to express back to God what we know of Him through His Word. Then we seek to experience the presence and reality of God in our midst through the Holy Spirit as He responds to our worship.
We are committed to penetrating our community for Christ. Our mindset is one that constantly seeks to reach our community and beyond. Evangelism is a priority.
The mark of Christ’s disciples is love. We are committed to pursuing and emphasizing the need for concrete demonstrations of genuine Christ-like love and acceptance. We seek to be an accepting family church.
