Our ultimate desire is that of the apostle Paul: “To [God] be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever” (Eph. 3:21). We exist to glorify God by making and maturing disciples of Jesus Christ. Disciples are made through Spirit-empowered proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Disciples mature as they develop their relationship with Christ through the Scriptures and become more like Him. Christ is the key to making and maturing disciples. That is why our unifying motto is, “To know Christ and to make Him known.” Or in the words of Paul, “Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ” (Col. 1:28).
Our Core Values
Our mission determines the character of our church. As we worship and minister together, by God’s grace we strive to be a fellowship that is…
We aim to honor and display God’s distinctive character in our personal and corporate lives (Philippians 1:9-11). We find our delight in knowing, pleasing, and depending on Him (Romans 11:36).
We accept the inspiration, inerrancy, authority, and sufficiency of the Bible (2 Timothy 3:14-17). We make the careful exposition of Scripture the centerpiece of our services (1 Timothy 3:15).
We believe that right conduct must flow from a right heart (Romans 6:17–18). We emphasize the gospel as the foundation and primary motivation of the Christian life (Titus 2:11–14).
We pursue our ideals in the context of close, encouraging relationships (Ephesians 4:1-16). We challenge each member to use his or her spiritual gift(s) to build up the Body of Christ (Romans 12:3-8).
We endeavor to share the message of salvation with the lost (Matthew 28:18-20). We also support and pray for missionaries in a variety of countries (Ephesians 6:18-20).
