We are disciples
We are committed to growing more Christlike — loving our neighbors and loving God.
We endeavor to teach the whole Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. We believe the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, and that its teachings are best summarized in the creeds of the historic Church:
We interpret the Bible the way the Reformers of the 16th century did, especially as laid out in their confessions and catechisms.
We are reformed
We are liturgical
Our worship service is participatory with responses and psalms sung in parts.
We have communion weekly.
We invite all who confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Head of the Church to worship with us.
We worship together as families without age-segregated programs. We are training up children in the way they should go: teaching them to worship by example. We are glad when a baby shrieks during our sermon!
We affirm Biblical roles of manhood and womanhood.
We believe in the importance of Christian education, through homeschooling or Christian Schools.
We are family affirming
Our church is a member of CREC
