WE BELIEVE our ministry is rooted in a desire to have a God-glorifying church where we are able to present everyone mature in Christ. A mature church will be connected to the past by learning from the saints that have gone before, and relevant for today through its care for each other, and witness to the world.
WE BELIEVE a God-glorifying church is produced through God-honoring and Christ-centered worship and the means of grace.
What is God-Honoring & Christ-Centered Worship?
We were created to worship God. This worship is to take place in every area of life, but especially in the corporate gathering on the Lord’s Day. This worship is where God has promised to meet his people through His holy presence and where the body of believers of all ages gathers together to blend their hearts, minds, and voices to praise their God.
What are the Means of Grace?
The means of grace (Word, sacraments and prayer) are the means that God Himself has personally appointed and promised to bless for the salvation, sanctification, and comfort of His people. They are the only “tools” the church has been given to make believers mature in Christ because they are the only means by which the Holy Spirit unites sinners through faith to Christ.
Our Statement of Faith
WE BELIEVE that there is one and only true and living God who is and always has been in three persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE that this God is infinitely glorious and majestic, and yet has made Himself known to finite man generally through His creation and more specifically through His perfect revealed word of the Holy Scriptures.
WE BELIEVE God entered into a Covenant with man, and though man broke the first covenant, God was gracious to enter into another with him.
WE BELIEVE the second person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ came to earth as a man, lived a perfect life and died a substitutionary death on behalf of all those the Father gave to Him, thereby making the covenant relationship between God and the elect complete.
WE BELIEVE that the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Trinity, applies the perfect work of Christ to the elect by regenerating them and working faith in them, thereby uniting them to Christ.
WE BELIEVE that Mankind is to live a life that is pleasing and glorifying to God, which is only made possible by those who has been redeemed by Christ and indwelt by the Holy Spirit.
WE BELIEVE the Church on earth is God’s means of making the good news of the Gospel known throughout the earth and does so through her worship and witness.
WE BELIEVE Jesus Christ's Second Coming will be a bodily return to earth, to judge the living and the dead by casting into hell all those who are not found in Him, and acquitting all those that are in Him.
WE BELIEVE the redeemed Church will be for all eternity in the New Heavens & Earth praising and glorifying our Triune God.
