Our Distinctives

We are Reformed and Presbyterian in our doctrine and practice, and we are joyful in our life together in the Lord.

We are committed to Biblical worship.

As a church, we exist to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. Our Sunday worship services are the pinnacle of our week, as we gather together to worship God and hear His Word preached. We strive for worship that is both reverent and joyful, and we aim to follow the principles and patterns in God’s Word. We read the Scriptures, sing His praises, confess our faith, pray for His blessing, and learn from His Word.

We are committed to the Lord’s Day.

We believe that Sunday, the day of Christ's resurrection, is the day of the week God sets apart as holy. God gives us the Sabbath Day for our good: to rest and to be spiritually refreshed through worship and fellowship with God and His people.

The Lord’s Day offers us an opportunity to rest and re-focus on the Lord, as well as to grow in our love for one another. We enjoy beginning and ending the day with worship together.

We are committed to the means of grace.

We recognize that our life as Christians is entirely dependent upon the grace of God. We are thankful that God gives us His grace through His Spirit, particularly through His Word and sacraments.

The preaching of God’s Word is the centerpiece of our ministry, and central to our Christian growth. Our pastors are committed to expository preaching, as they typically preach through books of the Bible on Sunday mornings and evenings.

The Lord’s Supper is also essential to our communion with Christ, and we enjoy this sacrament together each Sunday evening. We invite anyone who has professed faith in Christ and is a member of a Bible-believing church to join us at the Lord’s Supper.

We are committed to prayer.

One of the hallmarks of the early church was their devotion to gathering for prayer. We place a high priority on praying together, and we hold our weekly prayer meeting each Sunday after our worship service. We pray in response to the sermon, we pray for each other and bear each other’s burdens, and we pray for the advancement of Christ’s kingdom. The prayer meeting is at the heart of our life together as a church.

We are committed to nurturing our children.

As Presbyterians, we believe that God gives his covenant blessings both to us and our children. They become part of our congregation by their baptism as infants, and we are eager for children to join us in our worship. They partake of the Lord’s Supper after they make a profession of faith before the elders of the church.

Our Sunday School program is designed to teach children about God’s Word, and to assist parents in their work of Christian instruction at home. Our youth program offers teenagers an opportunity to grow in Christian fellowship.

We are committed to spiritual support and oversight.

Our church is led by our pastors and elders. These are men elected by the congregation to lead the church and nurture our members. Our elders meet together regularly, and they meet individually with our families to pray with them and help with spiritual needs.

Our deacons are committed to helping our elders by overseeing many of the practical needs of the church, and also assisting members and others with needs that might arise.

We are committed to each other as members of the same body.

Our church is a family, and we are committed to growing together as brothers and sisters in the Lord. We enjoy being together during church meals, Bible studies, and other opportunities for fellowship. And we also enjoy being in each other’s homes, and sharing our lives together during the week.

We are committed to sharing the blessings we enjoy with others and advancing Christ’s kingdom.

The blessings we enjoy aren’t just for us! We are committed to growing strong in the Lord so we can share the gospel with others and be part of advancing His kingdom in the world. We seek opportunities to serve our community through local ministries, and we support the efforts of missionaries in countries all over the world.
