OUR VISION AND DISTINCTIVES

 

1. Biblical Fidelity & Confessional Integrity

An unyielding commitment to the inspiration, inerrancy, infallibility, authority, sufficiency, and efficacy of Scripture for faith and practice, which necessitates a respect for and healthy dependence on the Protestant Reformed Confessions (Isa. 55:10-11; 2 Tim. 3:16-17; Titus 1:9; 2 Pet. 1:21; Rom. 10:17; Jude 3; Heb. 10:23).

2. Gospel-Driven & Christ-Exalting Ministry

A sincere passion to proclaim the gospel of grace, always with the aim of exalting Christ in the hearts, minds, and affections of God’s people (1 Cor. 1:23; 2:2; Eph. 3:8; John 21:15-19; Phil. 1:21; 3:8).

3. Earnest Prayer & Expository Preaching

A resolve to practice fervent prayer in the closet and from the pulpit, along with a unbending dedication to expository preaching that informs the mind, transforms the heart, and stirs the affections (Matt. 6:5-13; 1 Thess. 5:17; Acts 2:42; Eph. 1:15-23; Acts 2:14-36, 42; 12:5; 20:27; Rom. 10:14-15; 2 Tim. 4:1-5).

4. Intentional Evangelism & Personal Discipleship

A purposeful commitment to bold evangelism, coupled with a dedication to the old paths of serious, deliberate, faith-maturing discipleship (Luke 9:1-6; Acts 7:1-60; 8:26-40; Matt. 28:19; Luke 9:23-24; Col. 1:28-29).

5. Godly Leadership & Biblical Polity

A sincere devotion to personal piety among church leadership, coupled with a strong adherence to biblical polity (Acts 20:28; 1 Tim. 4:12; 1 Pet. 5:1-4; Acts 15:1-21; 1 Tim. 3:1-7; Titus 1:5-9).

6. Reformed Worship & Vibrant Community

A joyful commitment to, and humble confidence in, the ordinary means of grace in Lord’s Day worship, coupled with the nurture of loving Christian fellowship (Ex. 20:1-11; Ps. 100; Acts 2:42-47; 20:7; Rom. 12:10; 1 Cor. 11:17-34; 12:12-31; John 13:34)

7. Missional Clarity & Church Multiplication

A fervent and undistracted commitment to make disciples of all nations though the preaching of the gospel and the planting and strengthening of biblical churches (Matt. 28:16-20; Acts 14:7, 21-23; 15:35; Rom. 10:14-17; Titus 1:5-9).
