Our Name Describes Us

Christ Centered.  Reformed Tradition.  Southern Baptist.  Intentionally Relational.

Christ

Christ.  First.   


Our heart is to be a church that puts Christ first in all things.  That's why Christ is first in our name.  Our worship is Christ-centered.  Our ministries are Christ-focused.  Our purpose is Christ's glory.  Our mission is


To know Christ and make Him Known


I count all things to be loss in view of the surpassing value of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have suffered the loss of all things and count them but rubbish so that I may gain Christ.


Philippians 3:6-7



Reformed

Doctrine is important.


We are a reforming church.  We are a place where you can come and learn, discuss, and apply Reformed theology.  Our confession of faith is the 1689 Second London Confession of Faith.


What is Reformed Theology?


Reformed theology is the theology of the Reformation.  It stresses the sovereignty of God, the inability of mankind, and the power of grace.  There are five foundational declarations that sum up Reformed doctrine.  These are also known as the five "alones" or "Solas" in Latin;  Scripture Alone, Grace Alone, Faith Alone, Christ Alone, and the Glory of God Alone.

Baptist

Missional.  Evangelistic.


We are proudly a Southern Baptist church.  As Baptists, we are a "believers church," (everyone who is a member of the church has professed a personal faith in the saving work of Christ and has been baptized), and although we have elders, we are congregationally ruled.  As Southern Baptists, we help support over 8000 missionaries across the world sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ.


"Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."


Matthew 28:19-20



Fellowship

Intentionally Relational.  


Relationships describe everything we are about.  We seek to grow our relationship with Christ by following His Word.  We seek to bring others into relationship with Christ through sharing His Word.  And we seek to develop genuine relationships within our church by intentionally living out Christ's Word toward one another.


and let us consider how to stimulate one another to love and good deeds, not forsaking our own assembling together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another; and all the more as you see the day drawing near.


Hebrews 10:24-25
