Have you been a part of the church your entire life? Maybe you’ve never even visited with one at all? Either way, believe us – we know it’s not easy visiting a new church for the first time! You’re not sure what’s going to happen, where you’re supposed to be and when, and probably have several other questions. In order to help you have the best experience possible, here are some answers to a few potential questions you might have!
What should I expect during the worship service?
~We utilize a multiple purpose room as a gym during the week and as a worship center on Sunday mornings; the worship service starts at 10:15 am. We’ll gather together anywhere from 60 minutes to no more than 80 minutes.
We’ll kick off the service with a welcome and a few announcements about how to become more involved in the life of the church. Next, we’ll have a couple minutes to greet one another with a handshake or a hug. Then, we’ll invite all the kids up to the steps to participate in a short children’s message that is sure to bless your heart as well. After prayer we invite you to worship through giving back to God. Please do not feel any obligation whatsoever to give anything during your visit with us. Next we invite everyone to stand or sit, whichever your more comfortable with, and sing praise songs about God. Following worship through song, we eagerly hear life-giving teaching from the Bible. The service will conclude with one or two more songs and prayer.
What kind of music will I sing?
~Worship through music is led by our excellent praise team and is a mixture of both newer songs and older hymns. Our main focus is on what the lyrics remind us and teach us about God, not the style of the music.
What should I wear?
~Please feel free to dress in whatever is comfortable for you. Most of our people dress casually or business casual. All that concerns us is that you feel welcome to come as you are.
Where do I go when I get there?
~As you enter the building you will be greeted by some of the friendliest people around! They will be happy to answer any of your questions or direct you wherever you need to go.
What do you have for my kids?
~First, we love kids and are so happy to have your children join us in worshiping God! If it makes you more comfortable, your kids are welcome to stay with you during the worship service, or we would love to have them join us in our Children’s wing (to the right once you enter the front doors of the building from the parking lot).
Please feel free to drop off your nursery age (Infant-3 years old) before service, while kiddos ages 4-4th grade will be dismissed, by announcement, from the worship service after we praise God in song together as family.
After the service please pick up your child from the room where you dropped them off or if they were dismissed from the service, you can wait for them to return back into the gym/worship center to the row of chairs against the east wall.
What We Believe
~Although an autonomous local church, we chose to actively cooperate with the Southern Baptist Convention. Therefore we hold to the doctrines presented in the current Baptist Faith and Message.
- One God in three persons;
- Salvation by grace alone through faith in Jesus Christ;
- Preservation of salvation through the indwelling Holy Spirit
- The Bible as God’s inspired word, inerrant and wholly true;
- Faith in Christ as the means of living life;
- Service through the local church as ordained and guided by Christ and governed by the Bible;
- The call of disciples of Jesus Christ to share God’s love in word and deed;
- The eventual return of Christ; and eternal judgement in heaven or hell determined by the personal decision to accept or reject God’s gracious offer of salvation.

How we are lead:
~We practice a blended decision making process that involves the Lead Pastor, the Servant’s Council and the church body. Ultimately, the church family as a whole, not one member or leader individually, has the power to make decisions. Final authority rests with the church body.
