We seek to glorify God by proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ and equipping his people to worship, serve, and enjoy him forever.
To achieve this mission, we focus on:
Christ-Centered Worship and Expository Preaching Praising God in a manner that is reverent, joyful, and according to Scripture. Teaching through books of the Bible thoroughly, clearly, and applicably.
Making Disciples Teaching the Bible and the Westminster Catechisms. Mentoring relationships and small groups. Encouraging service outside the church.
Strengthening Families Nurturing marriages, equipping parents, and encouraging family worship.
Inviting Unbelievers Welcoming inquirers and encouraging them to ask questions. Inviting unchurched children to youth Bible studies, activities, and sports outreach programs.
Missions and Church Planting Planting daughter churches. Giving generously toward outreach, with a focus on Turkey. Supporting a sister congregation in Mexico. Promoting short-term and long-term missionary service.
Substance over style. Character over charisma. Worship over entertainment. Truth over sentimentality. Tradition over trendiness. Christ over all.
“What I need first of all is not exhortation, but a gospel, not directions for saving myself but knowledge of how God has saved me. Have you any good news? That is the question I ask of you. I know your exhortations will not help me. But if anything has been done to save me, will you not tell me the facts?” - J. Gresham Machen
