Under the banner of our church’s purpose statement and statement of faith, there are some particular distinctives that identify and characterize our local fellowship. Below is a brief explanation of each of the five particulars. Additionally, you can find a sermon for each of these particulars.
COMMITMENT TO THE BIBLE'S SUFFICIENCY
As a body, our desire is not simply to affirm the authority of the Bible, but to have it govern our lives, our families, our church, and our worship. Flowing from this commitment, we seek to govern our church polity and functions according to the precepts laid out in the Scriptures. In our worship services, therefore, we follow what is known as the regulative principle of worship, seeking to have our entire worship service governed by that which God has prescribed for us in His Word. Additionally, we encourage our members to have their lives and their families conformed to the Word of God, placing an emphasis on personal holiness resulting from a life transformed by the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through the discipleship ministries of our church, our goal is to have God’s Word shape every component of who we are, fully submitting our lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
