We seek to accomplish our mission through the following Ten Core Values:
At the core of who we are, why we exist, and what we do is the astonishing gospel: God’s good news of free and full salvation for rebellious sinners through the obedient life, substitutionary death, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ.
—1 Corinthians 15:1-4
We believe the Bible is the inspired, inerrant, and infallible Word of God. We love the Reformed faith and wholeheartedly confess and teach the doctrine of Scripture as summarized in the Westminster Standards Westminster Confession of Faith, Westminster Larger Catechism, and the Westminster Shorter Catechism.
We feel the necessity and awesome privilege of prayer and regularly gather as a flock to boldly pray before God’s throne of grace for one another and the advancement of Christ’s kingdom in our church, our families, our community, and the world.
Morning and Evening Worship
We are convinced that Christ Himself graciously and powerfully meets with us through Word and Sacrament. Because we are weak and God is glorious, we gather every Lord’s Day morning and evening to feast on the riches of the gospel and to offer God joyfully reverent worship.
We are devoted to a kind of preaching that proclaims Christ from all of Scripture as we walk through books of the Bible. Expository preaching derives its meaning and application from the passage itself within its particular context, resulting in preaching that is biblical, vibrant, engaging, practical, and gospel focused.
culture of evangelism & Hospitality
We are persuaded that evangelism and hospitality are commands for every Christian and should be the ordinary response to God’s marvelous welcome in Christ. We long to see our neighbors saved! Therefore, we seek to engage unbelievers by inviting them to church, sharing the gospel with them, and welcoming them into our homes and church. We have been blessed to be a blessing to others.
We love fellowship that is rooted in the gospel, resulting in a welcoming community where believers from all backgrounds and experiences can feel welcomed, encouraged, useful, and loved. We seek a fellowship that can only be explained by the cross.
At every age, we seek to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ into Christian maturity by walking side by side in discipleship, small groups, and Bible studies as we equip one another with biblical truth.
Jesus, our faithful shepherd, watches over us through the leadership of godly elders who are called to shepherd our souls. They do this by knowing the sheep personally, feeding the sheep regularly, and protecting the sheep diligently.
Place for Weakness
We desire a church culture where we can openly admit our sins and humbly acknowledge our weaknesses as we collectively point one another to Christ and His Word in the pursuit of holiness.
—2 Corinthians 12:9-10
