Mission and Vision
Who We Are
We are a family of God’s adopted children, committed to Jesus and to one another.
We aim to glorify God by making disciples of Jesus Christ by his Word and through his church to the ends of the earth.
The good news of Jesus is “of first importance.” It’s the only way to enter God’s kingdom. It’s also how we are transformed to be like Christ. If we lose clarity on the gospel, we risk losing everything. That’s why we always strive to make the gospel clear: it is the center of our life together and the basis for everything we do.
We want God alone to set the narrative and the agendas of our lives, so we look to his truth, not our own opinions. More than that, we know that God’s Word gives us spiritual life and growth. That’s why we are committed to expositional preaching, where a passage of Scripture is explained and applied to our lives. We serve up a steady diet of consecutive expositions, working our way straight through a book of the Bible.
Worship is for all of life. And yet it is a unique privilege to “come together as a church.” When we gather each week, the Bible is the foundation for everything we do. We aim to read the Word, preach the Word, pray the Word, sing the Word, and see the Word (in baptism and the Lord’s Supper).
When we hear each other sing to God and about him, we are encouraged and built up. That’s how God designed it. Since church gatherings are not only for worship but also for mutual edification, church singing should be not only vertical but horizontal: we sing to God, but also to one another. So, as we sing theologically rich songs, old and new, the primary instrument is the church’s collective voice.
When people bow the knee to Jesus as King, what do they do next? They are baptized into the church to live as a committed community. This forms a clear distinction between the church (full
