Why We Gather
We gather to ask, seek, and knock for God to develop us into a community of worshipers, that bears much fruit, as we live and proclaim the gospel with authenticity and passion. Our church is made up of people— people who need Jesus every day. We gather each Sunday to meet with God, to hear from His Word and to respond to what He has to say to us as a community. In this way we are reminded that we are His and are refreshed in Him and His mission to save us and this world.
We believe that, because of our sin, we are separated from God and the good life that He intends for us. We all fall short of His glory, but by His grace, we put our hope and trust in Jesus. He is saving us and bringing us into a new life of relationship with Himself full of hope and joy. That is what our gathering is all about, and we would love for you to join us regularly to enter into this hope we have in Jesus!
How We Gather
Our service is designed to be a God-glorifying, Christ-exalting, Spirit-empowered, and cross-focused celebration of the gospel of our crucified, risen, and returning Lord Jesus Christ.
The music style is a blend of old hymns and new songs that facilitates our aim as just described, preparing our hearts for the ministry of the Word through systematic exposition of whole books of the Bible, interspersed with occasional topical expositions. We give the bulk of our time on Sunday mornings to this ministry of expository preaching.
We celebrate Communion each Sunday in our morning service. And we celebrate believer's Baptism occasionally on either a Sunday morning or a Sunday evening.
Hearing & obeying scripture
in Christian community is central to who we are and what we do. We value expository preaching, sound doctrine, and rich, relevant theology. Historically, the label Reformed Baptist probably fits us best.
The core of our obedience
to God's inerrant, authoritative Word is expressed as love of God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength, love of neighbor as ourselves, and a passionate desire to introduce our two loves to one another.
Our corporate worship
is designed to be God-glorifying, Christ-exalting, Spirit-enabled, and cross-centered. Our weekly gathering on Sunday mornings is the central experience of our life together.
The range of our ministries
extends from the beginning to the end of our life on earth, with a keen eye toward preparing for eternity addressing many types of personal and family needs.
