About Us

Who are we?
We are a collection of saints who gather together to comprise the local congregation of God's people.

What do we believe?
God is the all-powerful creator of this world, and therefore, he is our creator; we are his creation (Psalm 100) and subject to him. The things that we do must be in accordance with his word (Colossians 3:17).

God's word requires that we live according to it. In Psalm 119:9-10, the psalmist says that we keep our way pure when we guard our way with God's word. We cannot be righteous by our own standard; it is by God's word we know whether or not we are righteous (Romans 1:16-17).

We must also worship God by his standard. Oftentimes, humans approach God in a way that seems right to them, but this is not the standard. In Leviticus 10:1-3, Nadab and Abihu approached God in a way that they thought was right, but it was not commanded by God. We must worship God "in spirit and truth" (John 4:24). This means that we must earnestly and sincerely ("spirit") worship him according to the commandment that he has given ("truth," see John 17:17).

What is our purpose?
We want the world to know what our God has done for us--what he has done for the world. Scripture tells us that God had a plan to save us before the world began (Ephesians 1:3-14). He sent his son into this world so that we could have eternal spiritual life.

Because of what God has done, we are (or can be) redeemed by God. We have been bought by the blood of his Son who died for us (1 Peter 1:18-19; Colossians 1:11-14). We are made whole because of God (Hebrews 10:14). In a world where purpose is vague and unknown, he has blessed us with a complete purpose, a complete joy in him. We want the world to know our God because it is through knowing him and his word that each of us will be able to stand confidently before him (2 Thessalonians 1:5-8; 1 John 4:16-18), and, like our God (1 Timothy 2:3-4), we desire this for all people.
