We open the Word in a verse-by-verse fashion in order to clearly proclaim what God has said so that we may live it out.
We are devoted to prayer, submitting ourselves to God in the Spirit.
We love the body of Christ, and we fellowship often with one another, encouraging one another to walk in a manner worthy of the gospel.
We want to see every believer mature and grow into the image of Christ Jesus.

Come pray with us!
We will be up front with you. We are a small church. But we LOVE God and we worship the Lord Jesus Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit!
If you are passionate for God's Word and you love Christ's church, we believe that you will love it here!
There are MANY opportunities for you to hop in and serve alongside of us. We would love nothing more than to train YOU up for ministry so that you can use YOUR GIFTS in service to our Lord and to His church.
We hope to see you here on a Sunday morning!
We believe that the Bible is breathed out by God and is profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man or woman of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work (cf. 2 Tim 3:16-17). As it was breathed out by God, the Bible carries the authority of God. When the Bible speaks, God speaks. Thus, it "is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword" (Heb 4:12).
Therefore, we believe that preaching should be text-driven. We want to expound what the Bible says. We don't come to a verse and twist it to fit what we want to say. We work hard to study the Word in order to say what the Bible says. We believe the best way to do this is to work verse-by-verse.
Our pastor trained at The Master's Seminary, where John MacArthur served as president for many years. His passion is for biblical preaching that is practical and helpful for all of life. We are convinced of the Bible's power to TRANSFORM lives by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Such Word-focused ministry, based on God-breathed Scripture, fulfills four goals at the same time:
(1) Expository preaching builds up the church in faith and knowledge.
(2) Expository preaching brings believers to maturity marked by spiritual stability.
(3) Expository preaching produces a people whose lives are full of integrity.
(4) Expository preaching equips each member for service to one another.
(cf. Ephesians 4:12-16)
