Our Values and Goals

 

Infant Baptism

Our Core Values: 

We believe in the Triune God and Scriptures:

God is our King: God the Father is the creator of heaven and earth and sovereign over creation.

Jesus is our Savior: Jesus died on the cross to redeem our sins and calls us together as his church to spread his word and do his work.

The Holy Spirit works within us: The Holy Spirit moves us closer to the comfort of God the Father, Jesus and each other to tie us together and inspires us into mission. The Holy Spirit transforms and renews us to a higher purpose.

The Scriptures of the Old and New Testament: The Bible is the inspired word of God.


 

 

 

Goals and Objectives:

The Fellowship of the Believers

"They devoted themselves to the apostles' teachings and to the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe, and many wonders and miraculous signs were done by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved." – Acts 2:42-47

The Six Great Ends of the Church

"The great ends of the church are the proclamation of the gospel for the salvation of humankind; the shelter, nurture and spiritual fellowship of the children of God; the maintenance of divine worship; the preservation of the truth; the promotion of social righteousness; and the exhibition of the Kingdom of Heaven to the world." – Book of Order of the Presbyterian Church (USA): G-1.0200.


A Proportionate Giver:

A Proportionate Giver is someone who covenants with God to give to the cause of the Kingdom, through the ministries of his Church, a percentage of their income. By the daily study of God’s Word, by living every day in companionship with the Risen Lord and through service to those in need, a Proportionate Giver keeps his/her heart open to increasing that percentage as Christ leads them to other opportunities to give and serve and love.
