Who We Are
Our church is a local fellowship of the followers of Jesus Christ with a heartfelt desire to help men and women get to know God and His son Jesus Christ better. We are independent, non-denominational and open to all who desire to understand greater what a life of fellowship with God can mean to them.
Helping men and women build a closer relationship to God through His son, Jesus Christ. Ephesians captures the heart of what we desire for God’s people.
I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
Ephesians 1:17 (NIV)
To help men and women to grow as disciples of Jesus Christ and to reach those searching to know God and help them to increase the power of God in their lives. At the core of our mission is a declaration by Jesus Christ the close of the Gospel of Matthew:
18 And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in [my name] 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
Matthew 28:18-20 (ESV)
Our main focus is always helping the individual believer grow into all God has called him to be in Christ. To do this, we offer a combination of ways to grow as a Christian. Every Sunday we host Large Gatherings at our Ministry Resource Center.
These are designed to help you learn God’s Word and to fellowship together as a family. Our smaller Home Fellowships provide a place for spiritual nurture and growth on a smaller and more intimate level. Our series of Biblical Studies Classes allow for an in depth study and application of God’s Word on a variety of needful topics.
Our Vision is global, to reach the world for Christ. We pursue this as individuals by reaching out to our communities and by praying for the outreach of God’s Word around the World. We also maintain fellowship with ministries around the world who share a passion for the ministry of God’s Word.
We believe that God has a plan, a purpose and an emphasis for every individual and every church as they minister within their sphere of influence. The Bible is full of the truths we believe as individual Christians, but there are seven “high impact” truths that God wants us to emphasize in our ministry:
The Bible is the revealed word of God
There is only one true God – the Father of Jesus Christ
Jesus is the Christ, the son of the living God
Through Christ alone and by grace alone we have a new relationship with God
Through Christ love is our new commandment
Through Christ we have new power by God’s gift of holy spirit
Through Christ we have a new destiny to be gathered together when Christ returns
It is not that the teaching of these seven essential truths is unique to us, only that they represent what God has set before us to emphasize in our ministry.
