We believe that the Bible is God's inspired word, it is without error, and it provides direction for daily living.
We are just regular people of most every variety. We are people of various economic levels, all different ages, and a wide range of backgrounds. We are a diverse group, from a variety of stations in life, and at different stages of knowledge and spiritual growth. We don't believe we know everything, we're sure we make mistakes from time to time, and we don't always treat everyone as we should. But we hope we are all trying to imitate Jesus as much as possible, with the fullest understanding that we need to grow and strengthen our spiritual lives every day. If you decide to visit us, you'll find people who love Jesus, love the Bible and love one another.
The church is much like any group. You will find traditionalists and also those who prefer trying new things. We are a diverse group who are all at different stages of knowledge and spiritual growth.
We are brought together knowing we are sinners in need of Jesus’ cleansing blood.
People in this church love Jesus, each other, and believe the Bible contains the word of God.
There are several prayers during the service. Prayers include adoration and thanks to God and requests for special needs and guidance for our members, our extended family, the community and the world.
The Lord’s Supper or Communion
The Lord's Supper will also be included in our worship time. During this time, trays of unleavened bread (symbolizing the body of Jesus) and cups of grape juice (symbolizing the blood of Jesus) will be passed throughout the auditorium. This is a celebration of what Jesus did for us on the cross (cf. 1 Cor. 11:23-26). You need not feel compelled to participate. You are welcome to just pass the trays to the next person.
Plates will also be passed for the weekly offering. Members participate in this to further the work of the church – guests do not need to participate. (cf. 1 Cor. 16:1-2)
When you visit you will hear spoken prayers and a lesson from God's Word, based upon book chapter and verse. We believe in the power of prayer and God's Word, so these aspects will take up a considerable amount of our worship time. The lesson is normally 20-30 minutes long. We hope you find it refreshingly Bible-centered and applicable to your life. Accurate and relevant Bible teaching is an important element of our assemblies. We believe that we should have Scriptural authority for everything that we do as Christians, and as a church. The Bible is the inspired Word of God, and it is all that we use to determine our practices and beliefs (cf. Tit. 2:1-2; 2 Tim. 4:2-5).
At the end of the sermon an invitation may be extended. This is a good time to invite those who wish to make a commitment or seek prayer support to come forward.
If someone responds for baptism, you will witness the baptism immediately. The baptism is by immersion and is for the forgiveness of sins.
Acts 8:35-39; Romans 6:3-4; Colossians 2:12; Acts 2:38
What will be expected of you?
Nothing at all! You are welcome to participate – but don’t feel obligated.
Listen to the Gospel. It is the power of God unto Salvation (Rom. 1:16). Today is the day of Salvation to all who will have it (2 Cor. 6:1-2). It is our hope that you will participate in the worship service, through singing with us (song books are provided), pray with us, and read scriptures with us (a bible is also provided in the racks in front of you). In the process we hope you will see your need (as everyone has the need) to obey the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Please stay a while after our worship service, as we would like to introduce ourselves to you, and get to know you.
Heartfelt, simple Biblical worship. Solid Bible teaching in sermons and classes. Children's classes for all ages. Children welcome in our worship. Will provide access for handicapped and elderly.
