Our Commitments

Purpose

We are committed to exalting Jesus Christ and expanding His Kingdom, as we boldly proclaim His gospel, faithfully disciple His people, and gladly obey His Word.

Preaching & Teaching

We are committed to practical, systematic, verse by verse expositional preaching of God’s Word to thoroughly equip and encourage God’s people with all the Scripture has to say.
2 Timothy 3:16-4:5

We are committed to understanding the meaning of the Scripture by use of the literal, grammatical, historical method of interpretation, and application of that Word to our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit.
2 Timothy 2:15

Doctrinal & Practical Training

We are committed to training our members to correctly study and interpret Scripture for themselves and to understand the doctrinal truths and their practical outworkings. We believe that every doctrinal position has practical implications, such that a correct doctrinal understanding will result in correct actions in the life of a Spirit-directed believer.
1 Timothy 4:13

Smaller Gatherings

We are committed to providing weekly gatherings of smaller groups of believers in which we can encourage each other, learn together, care for one another, and serve Christ under the guidance of a shepherding leader. These consist of Sunday morning Adult Flock groups, College / Career group, Youth Group, as well as periodic smaller gatherings from within these groups.

Specialized Ministries

We are committed to helping our members grow by providing targeted discipleship opportunities church-wide for men, women, and teens. Because everyone is growing individually, we are committed to small groups which meet specific needs, as well as core areas of growth (i.e., Bible Study, special studies, ministry training, retreats, conferences, etc).

Music

We are committed to worshipping God together through music that is performed with skill and excellence that is God-honoring and performer-effacing, whose style fits the context of the gathering, whose lyrics exalt the character of God and express the truths of Scripture, and which facilitates the entire congregation unifying in corporate worship of God in song.
Colossians 3:16-17

Outreach

We are committed to mobilizing every member to be reaching out with love to our own community and around the world with the gospel message of Jesus Christ. We are committed to setting aside at least 12% of the member’s giving toward this purpose.
