We are Christ Centered
Jesus Christ is at the center of everything we are and everything we do. Having once been slaves of sin, we are learning what it means to be joyful slaves of His sovereign Lordship! We want everything we do to proclaim His preeminence, His supreme glory, and our satisfaction in Him! Of course, we pursue this passion imperfectly, but through grace Jesus Christ is our all in all!
We are Gospel Dependent
We are a people increasingly transformed by the radical work of the gospel. We don’t make this statement lightly – the gospel isn’t something that we simply ‘bolt-on’ to our lives. But rather, the gospel defines us. The gospel propels our desire for God and our ongoing surrender to Christ’s Lordship, as it operates at the forefront of our lives, increasingly transforming our mind, our heart, and even our affections!
We are Word Focused
Because we are Christ-centered and gospel-focused, the word of God is also at the center of our lives and ministry. The Bible isn’t a disconnected collection of facts and moral lessons – but rather, it’s a single story of an indescribably holy and just God redeeming a rebellious, unworthy people from their bondage to sin. As such, the person and work of Jesus Christ is the central theme and message of the entire Bible. Because God’s inspired, inerrant, and authoritative word is central to both the salvation of sinners as well as our Christian growth, expository preaching is the central focus of our worship services.
