They are probably a good deal like the ones you have seen before. We sing songs of praise to God, we pray together, we hear a message from the word of God, we have the opportunity to give financially to the church’s work as we’ve been blessed, and we take part in the Lord’s Supper. In addition to worshipping God, we also believe that our time of assembling together should also be a time to provide encouragment and support for each other. That’s why before and after we meet you will see people visiting with each other and greeting and welcoming you. For more info see our What to Expect page.
Whatever you feel comfortable wearing. We have some people dress up in suit and tie while others come in t-shirt and jeans.
We take the Lord’s Supper every Sunday just as the early Church did. We don’t do this just to do it or solely because we are trying to follow some command, but rather we take advantage of it as a weekly reminder of Christ’s sacrifice for our sake that we might constantly refuel our spiritual lives for the week to come.
Yes. It is our tradition here to sing without the use of instruments because that is the way we see the early Church singing. We hope this doesn’t throw you off if you are used to anything different. It is the words of praise that are important, so we hope you will have the opportunity to put your heart into the a cappella songs we sing.
Our entire complex is one story with the exception of our baptistry. There are also handicap restrooms avaliable.
We have Bible classes on Sunday morning and Wednesday night for elementary and intermediate age children. We also have Children's Church during our Sunday morning worship where children can learn from God's word in an age appropriate and engaging way.
As opposed to someone who merely appreciates the teachings of Jesus, a Christian is a person who has made the commitment to follow those teachings. This means that not only have they embraced Jesus as their Savior, but also as their Lord.
This is why people desiring to follow Jesus were told to “repent . . . and turn to God,” (Acts 3:19). It is also why confessing that Jesus is Lord is part of our salvation experience (Romans 10:9-10). This dead to self/alive to God principle finds ultimate expression and completion in baptism where our old self is “crucified with Him,” (Romans 6:6), so that we “may live a new life,” (6:3). This is what Jesus meant when He spoke of us being born again of water and Spirit (John 3:3-5).
Of course, this entire process takes place because we believe in what God has done for us through Jesus and have placed our trust in Him. Therefore, the Scripture speaks of us being saved by grace through faith (Ephesians 2:8-10).
Any follower of Jesus is welcome to attend any of our services. We hope you will be blessed by them.
We also ask that you let us know if you would like to formally place membership so we know to expect you regularly, can add you to our directory, give you access to our member’s area on the website, and other things such as that.
We ask you to keep in mind in all this, however, that we as people do not truly add anyone to the Church. Only God can do that. Make it your aim therefore, not just to be one of us but rather to be conformed to God’s requirements for membership. (Read the FAQ "How do I become a Christian?" above.)
