“A Place Where Love Works”

We stand upon the foundation of the past and use it to launch us into the future that God has planned for all of us. We have gathered together, cast new vision, define our core values, and have charted a course for the future. We have begun to make our DREAMS become bigger than our MEMORIES.

Our History

We were founded in 1916. In 1998 a video was commissioned by Rev. Edward Jones. This video depicts that 75-year history of our church. We hope that you will enjoy looking back to our beginning.

Our Vision

"Love one another…by this everyone will know that you are my disciples – if you love one another." (John 13:34-35)

Biblical Foundation
The Bible is our source for all that we do as a church.

Continuous Spiritual Growth
We create environments for spiritual growth at every level.

Responsive Compassion
It is our responsibility to respond with compassion to those in need.

Authentic and Generational Relationships
This will be a spiritual family that crosses generational gaps and creates “a place where it’s OK to not be OK.

Excellence Honors God
Everything we do in our community and in our church should be done with excellence and care.

YOU ASKED FOR IT: End of Summer Message Series

We all have questions about life. The church should be a place where we can find answers to tough questions and talk about tough topics. The great thing about our culture today is that we aren’t afraid to ask the tough questions – but at the same time, we as the church cannot be afraid to give the right and true answers to these questions directly from Scripture.

The greatest tragedy in this generation and in this culture is that we think we know everything and we actually believe things that aren’t grounded in truth. We not only need to know WHAT we believe, but we need to be able to rightly explain WHY we believe it. That is what the “YOU ASKED FOR IT” message series is all about.

Once Saved, Always Saved? Hebrews 10:26-27; Luke 15:24

One of the more popular doctrines of some mainline denominations is that of “once saved, always saved.” It’s the idea that once someone has accepted Jesus Christ and have their sins taken away, then that person can never be lost, no matter what they choose to do with their life.

Join us this Sunday at 10:00am we honestly and openly talk about this topic and go to The Word of God to find the truth.
