Our Mission

 

In this church, we strive to live under the kingship of Christ, glorifying God as we grow through Christ-centered worship, active discipleship, and caring fellowship.

What are we like?

Our church is a warm and friendly group of people. We value Christian fellowship and love to spread the truth of God's great love. We would love for you to worship with us! 

Our goal is to promote Christ-centered fellowship among believers; to care for each other in physically, emotionally, and spiritually supportive ways; and to provide educational opportunities for growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We also strive to equip our members for evangelism in our local community, and support missions throughout the Christian Reformed denomination and the world. 

We support and pray for our spiritual leaders and encourage people of vision to take up leadership positions in the congregation. We also encourage our members to provide Christian leadership roles in every sphere of public and private life.

The Christian Reformed Church affirms what is declared in the Belgic Confession, the Canons of Dort, and the Heidelberg Catechism. As a denomination, we also subscribe to the Apostles' Creed, the Athanasian Creed, and the Nicene Creed.
