“You are God's field...” 1 Corinthians 3:9
About Us
We are a simple gathering of Christians who believe in and follow the Lord Jesus Christ. We believe that the Bible is the Word of God and we seek to preach it faithfully. Our aim is to exalt our Lord Jesus Christ, and to point all people to Him as the only One who can cleanse and save them from their sins and bring true joy to their lives.
Our purpose is to glorify God through all we do by gathering as a body of believers for prayer, worship, faithful and accurate preaching and teaching of God’s word, observing the two ordinances of the church (i.e., baptism and the Lord’s Supper), fellowshipping with each other, loving and serving one another, exercising our spiritual gifts, and evangelizing the lost.
What We Believe
The Bible is God's infallible, inerrant message to human beings (II Timothy 3:16-17)
There is one God who has created all things (Genesis 1:1; 1 Timothy 2:5). The scriptures reveal Him in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19; 1 John 5:7)
Adam and Eve, the first humans, rebelled against God. Since that time, all human beings have been born spiritually dead and thereby separated from God (Genesis 3:1-24; Romans 5:12-14)
God sent His son, Jesus Christ, into this world to save human beings from an eternity in hell. By dying on the cross and taking all sin on Himself, He has paid the penalty that all sinners deserve (II Corinthians 5:21)
Good works cannot save us. We can only be saved by placing our faith in Jesus Christ. (Ephesians 2:8-9)
Jesus Christ was crucified and buried, and He rose from the dead on the third day (I Corinthians 15:3-4). He is now in heaven interceding for those who believe in Him; He will return to take them to be with Him forever. Unbelievers will face everlasting destruction (I Thessalonians 4:12-18; Revelation 20:11-15)
Ministries
Prayer – We believe that prayer is one of the most important ministries of the church today (1 Timothy 2:1-9). Collectively, we meet regularly on Tuesdays and Saturdays for prayer. In addition, we encourage each member of the congregration to spend daily time with the Lord in prayer.
Solid Bible teaching – We seek to teach the Bible faithfully and accurately. We employ various means to expound sound doctrine to the saints, including systematic, expository, and topical Bible teaching.
Evangelism and community outreach – We engage in a number of evangelistic and outreach efforts, including water bottle and tract distribution, one-on-one witnessing, friends and family dinners, and more.
Children’s Sunday School – Throughout their school years, children are taught the Gospel and the basics of Biblical history and doctrine.
Women’s Bible study and fellowship – Women are encouraged gather each week to study God’s Word together and enjoy a time of fellowship and refreshment.
Men’s fellowship and prayer – Men are encouraged to gather each week for a time of fellowship and prayer.
Ministry to the elderly – Monthly, we visit Meadowview Nursing Home for a time of teaching, singing, and encouragement.
Pastoral Leadership
We believe that plural pastoral leadership (Acts 14:23; Titus 1:5, 1 Timothy 3:2, 5:17; Ephesians 4:11), is still the best pattern to follow for the spiritual care of the local church today.
