"Our church presents
a balanced ministry that serves in every area of life."
Along with other churches, we share the task of presenting a high standard of morality and citizenship to our community. We take our responsibilities as a church seriously, and pledge our continuing efforts toward teaching the Bible in its entirety throughout the world.
Our church presents a balanced ministry that serves in every area of life. Our Bible teaching offers clear and inspired teaching for all ages. We consciously seek to follow biblical patterns in our worship. Jesus Christ is always presented as Lord and Master. The Holy Spirit is given freedom to order worship as He sees fit. We believe you will feel "at home" in our services.
Statement of Faith
1. In the verbal inspiration of the Scriptures, both the Old and New Testaments.
2. Our God is a trinity in unity, manifested in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
3. In the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His virgin birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and atoning death on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory.
4. That regeneration by the Holy Ghost for the salvation of lost and sinful man, through faith in the shed blood of Christ, is absolutely essential.
5. In a life of holiness, without which no man can see the Lord, through sanctification as a definite, yet progressive work of grace.
6. In the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, received subsequent to the new birth, with the speaking in other tongues, as the Spirit gives utterance, as the initial physical sign.
7. In water baptism by immersion for believers only, which is a direct commandment of our Lord, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost.
8. In the Lord's Supper and washing of the saints' feet.
9. That divine healing is provided for in the atonement, and is available to all who truly believe.
10. In the premillennial second coming of Jesus: first, to resurrect the righteous dead and to catch away the living saints to meet Him in the air, and, second, to reign on the earth a thousand years.
11. In the bodily resurrection of both the saved and the lost: they that are saved unto the resurrection of life, and they that are lost to the resurrection of death.
Questions you may ask about our worship...
Why do we lift our hands? Psalms 134:2 Lift up your hands in the sancturary, And bless the LORD. I Timothy 2:8 I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting;
Why do we clap our hands? Psams 47:1 Oh, clap your hands, all you peoples! Shout to God with the voice of triumph!
Why do we stand when we sing? Psalms 135:1 Praise the LORD! Praise the name of the LORD; Praise Him, O you servants of the LORD! You who stand in the house of the LORD, In the courts of the house of our God, Praise the LORD, for the LORD is good; Sing praises to His name, for it is pleasant.
Why do people speak in toungues during worship? I Corinthians 14:14 For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruiful. What is the conclusion then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will also pray with the understanding. I will sing with the spirit, and I will also sing with the understanding. 39Therefore, brethren, desire earnestly to prophecy, and do not forbid to speak with tongues."
