What is a 'church'? To different people that word stirs up different images and experiences: some good and some bad. We believe that a church is a body of believers who gather in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit to worship God, encourage each other, and hear God's Word.
A church should be a safe community, a place to find healing, experience God's grace, and refuel before being sent back into the world where we are all called to be witnesses.
It is so easy to be distracted by all kinds of things in the church today. But we want to be a church that 'preaches Christ crucified' (1 Cor. 1:23) and centers on God's good news to us.
We believe the Bible is the Word of God, given without error and is the supreme and final authority for faith and conduct. We value the preaching of God's Word that clearly explains the meaning of the Bible and makes applications to our lives. This is sometimes called "expository preaching."
