The church you read about in the Bible
It is our desire to honor and glorify God by imitating first century believers in doctrine and practice as they honored God. We hope that when you look into God’s book and then look at us you will see a consistency in our lives with what you have read.
It is our intention to be Christ-centered, God-glorifying, Bible-based, and truth-loving. By being responsive to God’s grace in heartfelt obedience, we have found forgiveness, hope, peace, and joy in Jesus.
Our emphasis is spiritual – not material or social. For that reason, our main concern is that we abide in, and teach, the doctrine of Jesus Christ. This requires that we pay close attention to the Bible, and treat it as our sole guide in spiritual matters.
It is our aim to be the very same church as the one we read about in the New Testament. We do not claim perfection in our attempts to follow the doctrine of Christ, but neither do we use our imperfection as an excuse. We are always willing to examine ourselves as to whether we are in the faith (2 Cor. 13:5).
The Bible clearly tells us that the Lord’s church is “a spiritual house” (1 Pet. 2:5). The New Testament tells us how to conduct ourselves in the church, which was designed to uphold the truth (1 Tim. 3:15).
Like the church of the first century, we are independent and non-denominational, our only allegiance being to Jesus and one another. We have no ties to any religious organization larger than ourselves and no creedal connection to anyone else. We have a common relationship with all responsive believers wherever they may be and a practical, working relationship with those believers in this area who are a part of our fellowship. This is what we find when we study the history of the early church in the book of Acts. It is our firm conviction that only the truth can set us free (John 8:31f) from sin, the guilt sin brings, and spiritual ignorance. We are convinced it is God’s truth revealed in scripture that provides us with all that we need to have an abundant spiritual life.
We would love to see you at any of our worship assemblies or Bible studies! If you would prefer a less public setting, we would gladly set up a time where we could meet, at your convenience, at a place of your choosing, to answer any questions you might have about us, what we believe and practice, or to simply open God’s book and learn what He has in store for us.
If you would like to study the Bible on your own, we also offer a Bible Correspondence Course, free of charge, that we will gladly send to you. We also have CDs of all our sermons available upon request. Many are also available under the Sermon Audio tab on this site.
We are experiencing the joy and peace that is found in serving Jesus and one another. We want to share this joy and peace with you!
