Our Distinctives

A Christ-Exalting Church

As the church has become preoccupied with itself it has lost its love for Jesus Christ. The primary purpose of the church is to exalt Jesus Christ as sufficient for every need of man and to give Him the worship He is worthy to receive. Jesus Christ, not man, is the focal point of the church. It is the chief end of man to focus our affection and attention on Him.

We are a Christ exalting Church.

A Scripture-Honoring Church

We are committed to the inspiration, inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture. The Scriptures, in conjunction with the Holy Spirit and the care of the church body, are sufficient for growth and every spiritual and emotional problem. The integration of the concepts and techniques of secular psychology is unnecessary and, in the end, unfruitful.

We are a Scripture honoring Church.

A Preaching and Teaching Church

We are committed to preaching and teaching the Bible. It alone brings the authority of God to bear in the believer’s life. The command to “Preach the Word” in the light of Christ’s appearing is kept foremost in our ministry. We seek also to teach the great doctrines of God, Christ, sin, sovereignty, grace, salvation and others.

We are a preaching and teaching Church.

A Disciple-Making Church

Christ’s mandate to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20) is the focal point of all we do. A discipleship emphasis is regularly given to encourage and enlist believers to pursue disciple making in their lives.

We are a disciple making Church.

A Marriage and Family Building Church

We are committed to the Biblical pattern for marriage and family. The Scriptural standards are given regular emphasis and priority. The key to the church is the family, the key to the family is the marriage, and the key to the marriage is the husband and father.

We are a marriage and family building Church.

A Ministering Church

Every believer a minister is our goal. The equipping of the saints for ministry and the operation of every believer’s gift is our priority. We are committed to the mutuality of ministry in the body.

We are a ministering Church.

A Worshipping Church

We seek to make our services a vital and joyous experience in the worship and praise of God. We seek first to express back to God what we know of Him through His Word. Then we seek the presence and reality of God in our midst as the Holy Spirit responds to our worship.

We are a worshipping Church.

An Outreach-Minded Church

We are committed to penetrating our community for Christ. Our mind-set is one that constantly seeks to reach our community and beyond. Evangelism is a priority.

We are an outreach minded Church.

A Loving Church

The mark of Christ’s disciples is love. We are committed to pursuing and emphasizing the need for concrete demonstrations of genuine Christ-like love and acceptance. We seek to be an accepting family church.

We seek to be a loving Church.
