What We Believe?
Communion, Holy Trinity, Baptism
We believe the Holy Communion table is open to all; it's Christ’s table, not ours. We believe the elements of Communion signify body and blood of Christ for us, helping us to be Christ’s body in the world today. TAP FOR MORE
We serve Communion every Sunday at the Contemporary Worship Service, and the first Sunday of the month at the Traditional Worship Service.
We understand God to be three persons in one: Father, Son & Holy Spirit. We believe God the Father is the creator of life and the one who sent Jesus Christ the Son to bring salvation to all on earth. TAP FOR MORE
We believe Jesus died for the sins of humanity and rose from the dead. We believe that the Holy Spirit is God’s present activity in our midst.
We believe baptism is a symbol of new life and a sign of God’s love and forgiveness of our sins. Through baptism we are joined with the Church and with Christians everywhere. We will baptize persons of any age. TAP FOR MORE
We baptize by sprinkling, immersing, or pouring. It is our understanding that baptism should only happen once in a person’s life. Since this is a sign of God’s love, we do not believe it can be done incorrectly.
“Boots on the Ground” is our neighborhood ministry. We work with Oakwood Baptist Church, Vandelia Church of Christ, and Generations to reach our community. Click to learn more about Boots on the Ground.
“The messages that we communicate by our lifestyle are the most powerful messages that we can send. People are watching and listening. Not to the messages that we wish we could give, but to the one we can’t help but give – what we show by the way we conduct our everyday lives.”
