Our Distinctives

  • We believe “every member is a minister” and joy is found in serving by finding the “right seat in the orchestra” for you to use the gifts and passions He has given you. (1 Peter 4:10-11, Romans 12:4-8)
  • We believe to live out the “one another’s” of the New Testament, we need to “move from rows to circles”. (NT contains over 50 “one-anothers”, Hebrews 10:24-25)
  • We believe “the best is yet to come because Jesus has yet to return”. (Philippians 1:21-23, 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18, Titus 2:13, Revelation 21)
  • We believe “people are often God’s method” so live to be “changed lives changing lives”. (2 Corinthians 1:4, 2 Timothy 2:2, 1 Peter 2:9)
  • We believe the church is a family, not a business or an institution. (Romans 8:14-17, Ephesians 2:19-22)
  • We believe in being a “family friendly” church where intergenerational interaction and involvement is the norm (Matthew 19:14, Titus 2:2-6)

Greetings from your Elders

WillI just finished a book that we as elders plan on sharing with each one of you this Fall titled Gentle and Lowly. The author does a great job of revealing from Scripture the heart of Christ. He gives focus to Matthew 11:28 where Jesus says, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” My guess is I am not the only one who has faced discouragement, disappointment and disillusionment through the many events of this past year; so being reminded of Jesus’ invitation has been very enlightening and encouraging. It wasn’t something “new to me but something I needed to be reminded of that I must never forget”. The book points out that Jesus wants us to know he is accessible (simply “come”) and that the “posture most natural to Him is not a pointed finger, but open arms”. May we be a people who accept Jesus’ invitation to come and find rest in Him. I love you people and thank God for you.
– Will
