Additional Info About Our Church

We like to define ourselves as a church small enough to care, but large enough to share. We believe in the founding principle of the universal church and we believe in the Apostles Creed. We support celebration of all Jewish Holy Days and teach the absolute, undiluted Word of God.


The mission of this church is to glorify the Lord Jesus Christ, and thus, God the Father through obedience to the Word of God and the worship of the triune Godhead. To this end, we will strive for a spirit of excellence as we teach, preach, and live according to the Word of God. We will act as Ambassadors for Christ and His kingdom, reconciling men and women to Christ working through the guidance of the Holy Spirit as God restores us in mind, body and spirit.


To lift up the name of Jesus Christ, worshipping Him in Spirit and in truth, and in dedicated service to all humankind, and to be committed to training and educating spiritual leaders for the work of the ministry.


We will execute the Great Commission in the preaching of the gospel for the purpose of making disciples, baptizing the same in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all things the Lord has commanded by proclaiming the whole counsel of God (Matt. 28:19-20). By these means the church will endeavor to be used instrumentally to perpetuate the faith once delivered to the saints. We strive to follow the principles stated in Matt. 25:35-41, "feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked, visit the sick and imprisoned, take in the stranger."
