OUR CORE VALUES


1. The Primacy of God’s Glory: “My glory I give to no other” (Isaiah 42:8). Therefore, we make decisions based on how God will be glorified, according to the Scriptures.

2. The Sufficiency of Christ’s Grace: “For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9). Therefore, we receive salvation as a gift from God, and not by our own works or merit.


3. The Priority of the Spirit’s Call: “The Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you” (John14:26). Therefore, we seek the leadership of the Holy Spirit in the light of the clear teaching of Scripture.


4. The Authority of God’s Word: “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work” (2 Timothy 3:16-17). Therefore, we study God’s Word and submit to its teachings for our spiritual growth, the mutual edification of Christ’s church, and God’s glory.


5. The Urgency of the Gospel Mandate: “Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:16). It is the desire and intent of the church that the gospel be central in all that we do, therefore, we actively seek opportunities to share the gospel.


6. The Beauty of the Covenant Community: “They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42). Therefore, we walk together, seeking the mutual edification of one another in the bond of Christian fellowship.


7. The Excellency of Expository Preaching and Teaching: “Devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching” (1 Timothy 4:13). Therefore, we devote ourselves to a consistent exposition and application of God’s Word, teaching the whole counsel of God according to historic Baptist doctrines.


8. The Majesty and Intimacy of Christ-centered Worship: “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (John 4:24). Therefore, we meet together regularly on the Lord’s Day and at other times specifically to offer worship that is Christ-centered, God-honoring, and Spirit-led in accordance with God’s Word.


9. The Necessity of Regenerate Church Membership: “You must be born again” (John 3:7). Therefore, we examine ourselves to ensure that we are in the faith and that Christ is in us, and we will encourage one another to stand firm in faith, to persevere in trials, and to demonstrate Christ-like love for one another in all that we do.


10. The Essentiality of Prayer: “I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling” (2 Timothy 2:8). Therefore, we will engage in corporate, family, and personal times of prayer for God’s glory.
