Our Purpose:  W.O.R.S.H.I.P.
  • Outreach - It is the responsibility of every believer to do their part in fulfilling the Great Commission given to us by Jesus. (Matthew 28:18-20)  We do this through personal evangelism, mission trips, community service, and community activities.
  • Renewal - We must be intentional toward being spiritually renewed- mind, heart, and body- by the Holy Spirit through the Word of God and prayer.  This responsibility is both personal and corporate. (Romans 12:1-2 and Ephesians 4:22-24)
  • Word - We are committed to the study of the inerrant Word of God, the Bible, through preaching and group and individual Bible study. (Romans 1:16, 1 Timothy 4:16, and Hebrews 4:12)
  • Sharing Life Together - Relationships are the fertile soil from which fruitful ministry grows.  We are committed to biblical fellowship for the encouragement of others and the growth of the Kingdom of God. (Acts 2:42-47)
  • Hymns, Psalms, and Spiritual Songs - In Scripture, music is a very important part of worship.  It is both encouraged and commanded by God as a form of exulting Christ and edifying believers.  We praise God with the melodies of our hearts expressed through instrument and voice. (Ephesians 5:19 and Colossians 3:16)
  • In-reach - As the Body of Christ we are to consider others better than ourselves and serve each other within the body through financial means, with helping hands, through words of encouragement, and with accountability and discipline. (Matthew 18:15-20, Philippians 2:3, and 1 Peter 4:10)
  • Prayer - The value of prayer in the life of a Christian and in the Church cannot be overstated.  We are committed to prayer both individually and corporately. (Philippians 4:6, 1 Thessalonians 5:17, and 1 Timothy 2:1-8)
