  • Sin and Salvation (Pillars of Faith Series)

    From our statement of faith: Sin: We believe that we sin when we disobey the commands of God’s inspired Word and reject His authority.

  • The BIble (Pillars of Faith Series)

    9-20 sermon

    There is a lot of criticism of the Bible right now. “It’s old, it’s unreliable, it doesn’t reflect modern understandings, it’s just another religious outlook.” Some would even say it is destructive. And yet we as Christians turn to it. In 2 Timothy 3:15-17, Paul says to Timothy, “You have been taught the holy Scriptures from […]

  • What We Believe (Pillars of Faith Series)

    We become what we believe.  We are formed by what we think is true and good. We might not always be consistent, but our lives follow the trajectory of our beliefs. David wrote in Psalm 115: Their idols are silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but do not speak;
eyes, but do […]

  • The Reality of The Kingdom of God

    If you have ever traveled, you know that cultures are different. The deep south is not the same as the far north in the United States (everything is fried in butter; if they don’t know you, they might not be open).
