WHO WE ARE:

Our Purpose:

Developing Passionate Followers of Christ!

Our Priorities:

1 Peter 4.7-11 states clearly that all we do in the Body is for the glory of God – 7 The end of all things is at hand; therefore be self-controlled and sober-minded for the sake of your prayers. 8 Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9 Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
So, what are these Priorities?
     One Passion: Worship! Mark 12.28ff says: And one of the scribes came up and heard them disputing with one another, and seeing that he answered them well, asked him, “Which commandment is the most important of all?” 29 Jesus answered, “The most important is, ‘Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.’      One Mission: The Great Commission – Matthew 28.18-20 says: 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 the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”making disciples of all ethnos
     One Body: Serving in ministry and mission – Ephesians 4.15-16 says: 15 Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
You might sum this up by saying that we exist:
     – to reflect the grace of God upward through worship      – to apply the grace of God inward through discipleship
     – to extend the grace of God outward through mission and ministry

Our Statement of Faith: The Baptist Faith & Message 2000

Our Church Covenant:

Having been led, as we believe, by the Spirit of God to repent and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and to give up ourselves to Him, and having been baptized upon our profession of faith, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, we do now, relying on His gracious aid, solemnly and joyfully renew our covenant with each other, as one body in Christ.
We will work and pray for the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
 
We will walk together in Christian love and exercise an affectionate care and watchfulness over each other and faithfully admonish and entreat one another as occasion may require.
 
We will not forsake the assembling of ourselves together, nor neglect to pray for ourselves, our leaders and others.
We will endeavor to disciple all who may at any time be under our care, in the nurture and admonition of the Lord, and by a pure and loving example to seek the salvation of our family, our friends and our neighbors.
 
We will rejoice at each other’s happiness and endeavor with tenderness and sympathy to bear each other’s burdens and sorrows.
 
We will seek, by Divine aid, to live holy lives in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, since by baptism we are both crucified and raised with Christ and by grace we now live in Him and He in us, and to subject ourselves and our lives to Him and His perfect will.
 
We will submit faithfully to the Word of God through careful study, sober meditation and passionate proclamation of all that our Lord Jesus Christ has revealed to us, understanding and cherishing, that ever word of God is pure, whether Old or New Testament, and is infallibly given to us and profitable for us for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness that we may be competent and equipped for every good work.
 
We will work together for the continuance of a faithful evangelical ministry in this church, as we sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines. We will contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, the relief of the poor, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.
 
We will, when we move from this place, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God’s Word.
 
May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen.
