We are honored that you are visiting our web site. Being a religious organization, we are always striving to find new ways to get our message out to members of the congregations and the communities. This web site allows us to reach people we may never have been able to contact before.
Please use this site to access the information you need about the church and as a resource for broadening your faith in Jesus and God. We look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you might have.
What We Believe
We practice unity and inclusion at the Lord’s Table for the sake of mission and for the sake of the world as the one family of God. Most congregations do this by celebrating communion every Sunday. That’s why we use a chalice as our logo.
We practice believer baptism – that a person makes the choice to follow God’s call rather than the choice being made for them as an infant. Baptism is the basis of membership in the Church and also a mark that every person is called to serve God – the idea of the “priesthood of all believers.”
We honor our heritage as a movement for Christian unity by cooperating and partnering with other faith communities to work for bringing about wholeness – healing and justice – in the world. This is what it means to be “ecumenical.” One example is our cooperative work with the United Church of Christ in Global Ministries for the past 25 years and our newer effort to share staff in the area of family ministries.
We are called to study and read scripture for ourselves. Rather than having tests of faith and creedal statements, we critically and thoughtfully study scripture, taking into account the history and background – the context – in which it was written.
We also honor the heritage of Christian unity by staying together in covenant as a witness to the world that even when we disagree we can still make room, welcoming all to the table as Christ has welcomed us. Our spiritual ancestors were fond of saying, “unity, not uniformity.”
We move to answer God’s call for justice particularly in the areas of care for the earth, the challenges for women and children, poverty and hunger and immigration. We seek to do this work in cooperation with other people of faith. Some say we “get dirty for Jesus” as a way of conveying the hands-on mission orientation of many of our faith communities.
New to Christianity
The word “Christian” has lost much of its meaning in our culture. It means “Christ in one.” As you communicate the Good News of Jesus Christ, this is what God expects of a Christian:
He expects us to GROW
He expects us to GO
He expects us to GLOW
He expects us to SOW
He expects us to SHOW
He expects us to KNOW
A Changed Person in thought and action and converted from the old to something new.
A Committed Person, one who has made a definite choice for God in Jesus Christ, a definite commitment and a dedication to the Kingdom of God.
A Challenged Person, challenged to serve others, challenged to “save” others and challenged to witness.
Come join us to Praise God and enriching our faith in Jesus Christ!
Salvation is accomplished by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone.(Ephesians 2:8-9) We believe that Jesus was more than a good man who lived a good life. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who came to earth, lived a sinless life, died on a cross, and arose three days later. We believe that by being crucified on the cross, Jesus took the wrath of God that you and I deserve. We believe that without Christ we are forever separated from God and will spend eternity apart from Him. We also believe that if a person confesses and turns from their sin, asking Christ to forgive them, then they become adopted by God. That person is no longer condemned, but is now a child of God.. If you would like to know more about following Christ, we encourage you to speak to Pastor Chuck for more information on God’s grace and your salvation through Jesus Christ.
Join Us for Bible Study
The Bible equips us to serve God (2 Timothy 3:17; Ephesians 6:17; Hebrews 4:12). It helps us know how to be saved from our sin and its ultimate consequence (2 Timothy 3:15). Meditating on God’s Word and obeying its teachings will bring success in life (Joshua 1:8; James 1:25). God’s Word helps us see sin in our lives and helps us get rid of it (Psalm 119:9; 11). It gives us guidance in life, making us wiser than our teachers (Psalm 32:8; 119:99; Proverbs 1:6). The Bible keeps us from wasting years of our lives on that which does not matter and will not last (Matthew 7:24-27).
Studying the Bible develops an appetite for God’s word and allows for spiritual growth. By studying His word we will be able to give reasons and to prove by the Word to the lost why Christ is our hope. The word of God will set you free, so discover His truth in the word and enjoy the freedom and peace it brings. John 8:32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free."
Join us in fellowship and study on Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm.
