Glory of God Focused 


The glory of God is everything!  The centerpiece of the universe for time and eternity is for

God to be seen and praised for His matchless perfections!  Every individual Christian and every local church family must have a continual, intentional, and passionate focus on the glory of God.  (1 Corinthians 10:31, Ephesians 3:21)




God is most glorifed through the Person and work of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ.  By His unrivaled character and work (merit), He has redeemed for Himself a people (the church).  As His church, we strive above all things to know Him, love Him, praise Him, and serve Him.  It is by, through, and for him that we exist.  It is our goal to keep Him the honored center of all that we say and do!  "In all things, He must have the preeminence" (Colossians 1:18)



Biblical Theology and methodology


It is our desire to be thoroughly biblical in the totality of our lives.  Our purpose, our methods, and our goals must be from sound biblical teaching.  We reject the modern concept that biblical goals can be achieved by man-centered, man-empowered methods.  Our theology must dictate our methodolgy.



Expository Preaching


The hub of the wheel of God's church is the preaching of the Word of God in the power of the Holy Spirit (2 Timothy 3:16-4:2).  The preacher must strive to be thoroughly biblical.  He must avoid the temptation of misusing scripture to support a mancentered or culturally relevant message.  The biblical text should be preached exegetically in its historical and grammatical context, giving application for today's world.  The pulpit is indispensable to the church's growth in knowledge, holiness, and love.  It cannot and should not be replaced or diminished. 



Biblical Worship Through Music

The music ministry strives to lead the church family to glorify God and to edify one another through singing and musical instruments, ministering with spiritual passion and doctrinal integrity, while mantaining high standards of music excellence.  The worship is to reinforce the faith through song and to express congregational praise and worship to Christ our audience. 


Parent Driven Children's and Youth Ministry



Parents are primarily responsible for the discipleship and discipline of their children/youth.  The church should not usurp the authority of godly parents, nor assume the responsibility of parents who are not fulfilling their duties.  The church should give itself to teaching the biblical principles of parenthood and to holding parents accountable to carry them out in the context of families.  While we have an activity program for children/youth, it should be viewed as an extension of the parents' roles, and it is never to replace them.



Evangelism/World Missions


The Great Commission is a great commandment.  Personal involvement in world missions is not a suggestion or an option, but it is demanded of every true believer.  The entire local church family should be personally and strategically involved in world missions, mobilizing laborers, prayer, and finances to the end of glorifying God among all peoples.

Small Group Ministry/Discipleship


One of the greatest outlets for every member is our small group ministry through Sunday School, Men's & Women's Ministries, and Young at Heart senior adults.  Such fellowships are employed to evangelize the lost, equip the saved, and minister to the individual needs in the body, promote fellowship, and accountability.
