Distinctives

  • We believe expository preaching is the wisest and most biblically sound choice among preaching methods. Expository preaching explains what the Bible says, what it means by what it says, and how it applies to life.
  • We seek to be Word-based and Christ-focused (cross-centered, gospel-centered) in all our ministries.
  • We affirm the historic Doctrines of Grace. These doctrines related to God's sovereignty in salvation prompt God-centered ministry as opposed to a focus on man.
  • We are missions-minded, emphasizing both local evangelism and the support of mission around the world.
  • We are elder-led, which is the biblical model of church government. Our elder board consists of both staff and non-staff elders.
  • We have a blended music format that utilizes the best of the historic hymns of the faith, along with the best contemporary songs to exalt Christ.
  • We observe believer's baptism by immersion. This is the only mode of baptism we find discussed in Scripture.
  • We believe in God's clear definition of marriage as found in both the Old and New Testaments: A true marriage is the unique binding of one man to one woman.
