Statement of Faith

To praise and glorify God through faith in Jesus Christ is our highest calling and purpose, giving us our greatest joy (Rev 4:11, Psa 16:11).

We affirm that we all need Bible truth (John 17:16-18).

While seeking to be patient and kind, we reject popular market-driven peddling of Christianity that appeals more to emotion and felt needs than to the mind and will of men (2 Cor 2:17, 2 Tim 4:2-4, 2 Pet 2:19-21). God is emotional (Gal 5:22, Gen 6:6, Mark 3:5).

However, positive emotions may come and go and, hence, are not the litmus test for spirituality or the presence of God (Mat 5:4).

The church is not to entertain and coddle, but to patiently and lovingly educate and equip saints to become ministers of God (Eph 4:11-15).
