Know It!

We are a congregation convinced of the absolute authority of God’s Word. We seek to know His Word for in it is the message about Him who gives eternal life. God is knowable. He has revealed Himself in His Word which points to His Son, Jesus Christ. To know Christ is to know Him who gave His life to ransom believing sinners from the wrath of God against sin. God tells us in the Bible that all people deserve to die because all have sinned against Him. But the Bible also tells us that the one who believes in Jesus Christ is no longer under the judgement of death for sin. He has crossed over from death to life. “And this is eternal life, that they know you the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent.” John 17:3

Show It!

We are a congregation that wants to show our faith in action. God calls us to live out our faith in Jesus Christ which means that we are to love God and others before ourselves. Our lives are to be shaped by the Word of God, which alone is true. Our faith in Jesus must be a visible faith, showing the love of Christ and bringing honor and glory to God. We are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works. “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Grow It!

We are a congregation that seeks to grow in our faith not only individually but also as a body of believers. We place a strong emphasis on Bible instruction for all ages. We are to continue to grow in our understanding of the gospel of Jesus Christ and all that it means for us. “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in the thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7
