WHAT TO EXPECT

We are a community of people who delight in God’s grace. When you visit us, we trust you will find us to be:

     • A joyful church. God has done great things for us, and we are glad! Because we trust in Christ who died and rose again to save us from God’s just wrath for our sins, we now rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory (1 Peter 1:8).

     • A serious church. Scripture says to rejoice with trembling (Psalm 2:11), and the gospel makes this possible. We take the worship of God seriously, with careful attention given to the reading and preaching of Scripture, and the expression of our dependence on the Holy Spirit through prayer.

     • A loving church family. God’s love has been lavished on us in Jesus Christ, and through His Holy Spirit, God’s love is poured out in our hearts toward one another. We want you to experience the love of Christ among us, so welcome! Come as you are. 

     • A church that is centered on the gospel. Christ died for our sins and rose from the dead so that we can be justified (declared righteous) in the presence of a holy God. This is the gospel. As a church, we will never move on from this glorious gospel - only into a deeper and more profound understanding of it. 

Our sermons are all intended to take us deeper into the gospel (Romans 10:14-15, Corinthians 1:17-18). We preach and teach through books of the Bible with an occasional topical series mixed in. All of Scripture is God-breathed and useful (2 Timothy 3:16-17), so we do not shrink back from declaring the whole counsel of God (Acts20:27). The new life we live is motivated by the gospel (Titus 2:11-14). The climax of our celebration of the gospel is in the Lord’s Supper, which we observe on the 1st Sunday of odd months, Christmas Eve, and Easter.

Our service is composed of multiple means of worship. We do not pick our songs according to age or style, but according to content, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs (Ephesians 5:19, Colossians 3:16). We strive to bring out treasures, old and new (Matthew 13:52). 

The liturgical structure of our worship service walks us through the whole of the Gospel pattern every Sunday morning, just as we see modeled in both the Old and New Testament (Isaiah 6, Deuteronomy 5, Romans 11-15).

OUR VISION

Our goal is to be a God-glorifying, Christ-centered, Bible-treasuring church where we can mature in our faith, disciple others, serve the community, reach the unreached, and fight shallow Christianity.

WHAT WE DO

As a church family we are seeking to glorify God in all that we do as we seek to reach out to a needy world with the glorious good news of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We see God's hand at work in our church family in many exciting ways, and we would love to see you and your families become more of a part of what God is doing here.

OUR COMMUNITY

Located just three miles north of highway 254 on Butler Road, we've been serving Christ and the community for more than 140 years.
