Our DistinctivesA Christ-Exalting Church
As the church has become preoccupied with itself it has lost its love for Jesus Christ.
The primary purpose of the church is to exalt Jesus Christ as sufficient for every need
of man and to give Him the worship He is worthy to receive. Jesus Christ, not man, is
the focal point of the church. It is the chief end of man to focus our affection and
attention on Him.
We are a Christ exalting Church.
We are committed to the inspiration, inerrancy and sufficiency of Scripture. The Scriptures,
in conjunction with the Holy Spirit and the care of the church body, are sufficient for
growth and every spiritual and emotional problem. The integration of the concepts and
techniques of secular psychology is unnecessary and, in the end, unfruitful.
We are a Scripture honoring Church.
We are committed to preaching and teaching the Bible. It alone brings the authority of God
to bear in the believer's life. The command to "Preach the Word" in the light of Christ's
appearing is kept foremost in our ministry. We seek also to teach the great doctrines of God,
Christ, sin, sovereignty, grace, salvation and others.
We are a preaching and teaching Church.
Christ's mandate to make disciples (Matthew 28:18-20) is the focal point of all we do.
A discipleship emphasis is regularly given to encourage and enlist believers to pursue
disciple making in their lives.
We are a disciple making Church.
We are committed to the Biblical pattern for marriage and family. The Scriptural standards
are given regular emphasis and priority. The key to the church is the family, the key to the
family is the marriage, and the key to the marriage is the husband and father.
We are a marriage and family building Church.
Every believer a minister is our goal. The equipping of the saints for ministry and the
operation of every believer's gift is our priority. We are committed to the mutuality of
ministry in the body.
We are a ministering Church.
We seek to make our services a vital and joyous experience in the worship and praise of God.
We seek first to express back to God what we know of Him through His Word. Then we seek the
presence and reality of God in our midst as the Holy Spirit responds to our worship.
We are a worshipping Church.
We are committed to penetrating our community for Christ. Our mind-set is one that constantly
seeks to reach our community and beyond. Evangelism is a priority.

The mark of Christ's disciples is love. We are committed to pursuing and emphasizing the need
for concrete demonstrations of genuine Christ-like love and acceptance. We seek to be an
accepting family church.
