Our Philosophy

Our philosophy or our search for basic principles is rooted in the belief that life was originally intended to be richly enjoyed. All things whether human, material, or spiritual were intended for our joy. Indeed, "He has given us all things richly to enjoy." Tragically, through man's disobedience and rebellion, the Divine intent was skewed: relationships were twisted, things became the "thorns and thistles" of life, and humans wandered in a spiritual desert.

Jesus Christ as God's emissary taught in His life how the human dilemma could become an abundant experience and in His death opened the way for us to realize that potential.

Our Theology

We are a Reformed church in that we adhere to the basic theological principles which flow out of the Reformation of the 16th century. We recognize, however, that these principles which have their genesis in the sovereignty of God were articulated centuries earlier in the ministries of Jesus and Paul and were further defined for the church by Augustine.

We adhere to the Apostles and Nicene Creeds as comprehensive confessions of the Christian faith, and we cherish the Heidelberg Catechism as an educational tool. We believe in the divine inspiration of the Scriptures and in the deity and humanity of our Lord. We live in anxious anticipation of everlasting life.

Our Mission

"EQUIPPING BELIEVERS TO THINK AND ACT BIBLICALLY"

Since actions are the natural outcome of our thought processes, we educate and encourage for biblical action. We seek to discover the mind of Christ (Philippians 2) and apply that understanding to life's situations. We believe that faith is incomplete until practiced. "What would Jesus do?" is a question frequently heard. "Why would He do it?" is the remainder of the equation. It is furthermore our desire to leave the earth for future generations far better than we found it.
