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


Dear church,

What a ride it has been for us these past 2 years. I praise God for His continued faithfulness to us shown in so many ways and for your faith lived out in many ways.

In my “time in the chair” this morning, I read Luke 4:13 which says “When the devil had finished all this tempting, he left Him until an opportune time.” I have heard it said the devil is like a sniper and will sit still and hidden as long as it takes for him to have his best shot at taking us out. I Peter 5:8 describes his approach this way: “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” I know there are MANY weapons and strategies God gives us through His Holy Spirit and His Word, but reading further in Luke this morning I read Luke 5:15 that says “But Jesus OFTEN withdrew to lonely places and prayed.” May we be a people who OFTEN make time to be alone with God to commune with Him and to allow HIs Word to transform us by the renewing of our minds to help us think Biblically, live distinctively and love like Jesus to impact our world for Him. I love you folks and love being a part of His church family with you!
