Bible Believing. Bible Preaching.
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work. 2 Timothy 3:16-17
A Message from the Pastor
~Rev. Jeff McCartney
Our Mission & Vision
Our mission and vision as a body of Believers is to foster and maintain public worship, to carry out the Great Commission, promote Christian fellowship and growth among its members, and to glorify Jesus Christ.
We gather as a community of believers in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
We believe in the authority and inerrancy of the Bible, the equality of all members, unity in diversity, and the priesthood of all believers.
We follow the Way of Jesus the Christ and share the Good News through worship, education, ministries, and missions
We value our heritage and the freedom it allows us to serve alongside other groups, both Christian and non-Christian.
We express our love for all in gratitude for the love God, through Jesus Christ His Son, has shown to us.

Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We encourage everyone to dress comfortably and respectfully. In essence, what would you wear to come into the presence of God. For some, that may mean a suit and tie, or a dress for ladies. But for others it may mean jeans and a golf shirt or blouse. No matter what you wear, you are always welcome here.
WHERE DO KIDS GO DURING THE WORSHIP SERVICE?
Nursery care is available for infants and young toddlers throughout the worship service. Children above the age of three are encouraged to remain in the sanctuary with the adults. We view this as a way for them to learn and grow in their own worship.
WHAT DOES A SERVICE LOOK LIKE?
Recognizing that worship is a communal experience that brings together diverse individuals, we draw from a variety of worship traditions as we follow the seasons of the Christian calendar.
