Our Statement of Ministry

What we believe:

PastorRussellArboretum (2020_10_14 00_11_16 UTC).jpg

     We want our church to be a community that corporately and individually loves God putting into effect the three-fold priority of God first, God's family second, and God's work in the world third. While realizing this is a biblical mandate, our expressions of it are not fixed but are a growing process as we are led by the Holy Spirit (Romans 12:1-2).

    e want a dynamic relationship with the Lord and His Word. Therefore:  We participate in joining together to celebrate and to worship the Lord through preaching, singing, Communion, baptism, giving, prayer, praise, and sharing the Lord's Word and His works (1 Chronicles 16:27-29). We believe that it is scriptural to train believers. 

     T herefore: We participate in the process of equipping and educating believers (children, youth, and adults) for the work of the ministry through bible studies, small groups, Sunday School classes, fellowship activities, and training experiences (Ephesians 4:11-13).  We participate in the ministry of overseeing and caring for one another through encouragement and  counsel in order to present every person complete in Christ.

     We want a dynamic relationship with nonbelievers.

Faith

For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith for faith, as it is written, "The righteous shall live by faith."

Romans 12:1-2
