Our Church's Values

 

We value God’s Word, The Bible, as solely authoritative and sufficient in all matters of belief and behavior for every believer’s enjoyment of God and for the ministry of the church, and therefore, the preaching of it by exposition and with authority (Psa. 1:1-3; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; 1 Pet. 2:2; 2 Pet. 1:2-4; 2 Tim. 4:2; Titus 2:15)

We value prayer as the underlying connection to God’s power for all our efforts in ministry and worship (Acts 2:42; Eph. 6:18-20; Phil. 4:6; Col. 4:2; 1 Thes. 5:16-18)

We value husbands, wives, and children fulfilling their biblical roles in the family and in the church (Deut. 6:4-9; Psa. 78:1-9; Eph. 6:4; 2 Tim. 3:14-15)

We value personal and corporate worship of God that engages both the mind and the heart (John 4:23-24; Jam. 4:8; Psa. 16:11; 2 Tim. 4:1-4)

We value Christ-centered relationships, especially through the regular gathering of small groups focused on God’s Word, prayer, and mutual love; this is called fellowship in the Bible (John 13:34; Eph. 5:1-2; 1 Thes. 5:11; Heb. 10:23-25; Jam. 5:16)

We value equipping the body in order to develop biblical knowledge, character, and actions that imitate Christ (Eph. 4:12; Col. 1:28)

We value every believer faithfully serving in the body of Christ with the gifts that God has given them (Rom. 12:3-8; 1 Pet. 4:10-11; 1 Cor. 12:7; Eph. 4:11-13)

We value personal involvement in the establishment of Christ’s church throughout the world preaching the gospel to those who do not know Him (Matt. 28:19-20; Acts 1:8; Rom. 10:1; Col. 4:2-4)

We value the submission of this church to Christ’s leadership, which is carried out by a biblically qualified team of elders (Acts 20:28; 1 Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9; 1 Pet. 5:1-3; Heb. 13:17)

We value equipping men for full-time vocational ministry in the context of the local church (Eph. 4:11-12; 1 Tim. 5:17)
