A Simple Identity
We are imperfect people serving a perfect Savior. We are committed to glorifying God by helping others grow in their commitment to Him. To this end we study the Bible together, worship God together, and meet together to encourage and strengthen each other as the church did in the first century (Ephesians 3:20-21). We strive to be a loving and supportive spiritual family of faithful Christians (Romans 12:3-8).
Jesus is the "head" of the church (Ephesians 1:20-23), thus, the church has no earthly head or headquarters. Each congregation is independent and self-governing under the oversight of the elders of each church, like the various congregations mentioned in the New Testament (Acts 14:21-23). God works through the local church to spread His word as we all use our strengths and abilities to further His will as revealed in the Bible (Ephesians 4:11-16).
A Simple Message
Our basic message is the same message preached by the earliest disciples: "Jesus Christ, and Him crucified" (1 Corinthians 2:2). The life of Jesus is a true expression of God's nature, the death of Jesus was the supreme expression of God's love, and the resurrection of Jesus is our promise of eternal life. The story of Jesus is revealed in the Bible and so we spend a lot of time learning and applying it to our lives to know Jesus better.
