Our Driving Distinctives

Glory of god focused

The glory of God is the overarching goal of the Christian life (1 Corinthians 10:31). God's program for this age is to bring glory to Himself through His Church. If the church is designed around the desires and preferences of people, then God is no longer the one being worshipped, the people are. The one who is to be worshipped is the one who dictates how He is to be worshipped. Therefore, the church must be faithful to Scripture as God builds His Church, His Way, for His Glory.

Ephesians 3:21 - "to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen."

Expository Bible preaching

The center of God’s church is the preaching of the Word of God in the power of the 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 man-centered 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 (2 Timothy 3:16-4:2).

Congregational worship

The music ministry strives to lead the church family to glorify God and to edify one another through songs, hymns, and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19). We believe the voice of the congregation is the church's primary instrument to the glory of God. All singing and instrumentation are done with excellence and doctrinal integrity. Congregational worship is to reinforce the faith through song and to express congregational praise and worship to Christ, our Audience.

Every Member Ministry Through Small groups

Every Christian in the local congregation has been given time, talents, and spiritual gifts for the edification of the body of Christ (1 Peter 4:10-11). The utilization of such gifts by every member is necessary for the proper growth and ministry of the church (Ephesians 4:11-16).

One of the greatest outlets for every member to minister is our Small Group ministry. Such fellowships are employed to evangelize the lost, equip the saved, and minister to the individual needs in the body. 

Home-life discipleship

Parents are given the primary responsibility for the discipleship and discipline of their children (Ephesians 6:4). They are to eagerly and actively bring up their children in the Lord through the classroom of life (Deuteronomy 6:4-9). The church does not replace the authority of godly parents, nor does it assume the responsibilities of parents in the home. While we have Children's Ministry and Student Ministry, they should be viewed as an extension of the parents’ roles, but never to replace them.

Local church centered missions

Every Christian is called to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20). This begins in the home, moves to the neighborhood, the city, the country, and the world. 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 people. Throughout the New Testament, we see God's program for this age being to and through the church to the glory of God!
