The Church is the “pillar and buttress of the truth.”
1 Timothy 3:15
a community of imperfect people who believe that God has shown us his love supremely in the incarnation, death and resurrection of his own son, Jesus Christ. We know that by nature we were sinners, but that we have been saved by God’s sovereign grace through faith in Jesus. Our desire is to live lives that reflect God’s grace and to make his grace known to others. We know that we can’t do this on our own. We are dependent on the Holy Spirit (the third person of the Trinity) and the Word of God, the Bible.
In our worship services we typically begin with a short reading from Scripture followed by a few hymns or songs of praise. We take time to publicly share words of praise and thanksgiving to God, and we may give an update on one of our missionaries. We might have a portion of Scripture the congregation reads aloud, and then we will sing another 3 or 4 songs during the service. We take an offering—which is another act of worship—but we don’t expect those who are not members to give to support the church. The pastor or a deacon will pray for the needs of the church during the pastoral prayer, and the pastor will preach a sermon which expounds a passage of Scripture. A typical sermon will last 30 to 40 minutes. Overall the service will typically last 1¼ to 1½ hours. We celebrate the Lord’s Supper (Communion) on the first Sunday of each month.
There is no dress code here. You may see a few men in ties and others in shorts and flip flops (in the summer, of course). Women likewise dress in a variety of styles and traditions. In keeping with what God’s Word teaches, our primary value in how we dress is modesty. Our goal is to glorify God and not draw attention to ourselves.
We are Baptist, which means that we believe that all who come to profess faith in Christ should be baptized by immersion in water as a sign and seal of God’s saving grace in their lives. We welcome you to worship with us and get to know us better regardless of your understanding of this issue.
