Whether you live in the area or are visiting our site from out of town, we hope that you will quickly sense that Jesus Christ is our Lord, Savior, and greatest delight. We are passionate to see Him proclaimed in His Word and displayed in His people, but we make no pretense that we are perfect. We are sinners saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. He has called us to Himself and collected us into this church family to grow together in this grace. We give Him all the glory. We believe that solid, biblical theology is necessary to undergird our lives and our worship. Many churches have opted for a feel-good-gospel and a superficial entertainment oriented worship, and in the process, have sacrificed depth in the knowledge of God. We are convinced that God is known through His Word. This is why the study of Scripture is central to all that we do. And the focal point of our message is “Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.” It is our greatest desire to faithfully proclaim Him. To know Jesus Christ is to find meaning in life and confidence for eternity. Please check out our resources and I want you to feel free to call or e-mail me if there are any questions I can answer about our church, the Bible, or if I can help you in any other way. And if you are here on a Sunday morning, we would love for you to join us as we worship our wonderful Lord. -Pastor Doug Thompson
Upward - Our first priority is vertical. We seek to be a God-saturated and God-infatuated people, always striving to purify and elevate our concept of God. And we seek to worship God seriously, passionately, in spirit and truth: “all that we are, responding to all that He is.”
Inward - Christ calls us to be His body on this earth and love one another just as He loves us. This means that we serve one another in our physical, emotional, and spiritual needs, and seek our mutual edification through the ministry of God’s Word: “Speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ.” (Ephesians 4:15)
Outward - Christ’s Great Commission compels us to take the Gospel to our nearest neighbors as well as to the ends of the earth. The ultimate reason for our existence is to send and support missionaries, plant churches and train indigenous pastors who also pastor and plant sending churches.
Forward - We are committed to looking beyond our own generation to train up the next generation to continue the mission God has called us to. Leadership training and reproduction must be an ongoing, intentional priority as Paul told Timothy: “What you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.” (2 Timothy 2:2)
