The glory of God is the supreme and central focus of what we are about here as we strive to exalt our Sovereign Lord and His sufficient Word for the joy of all peoples. We seek to treasure Christ and welcome others as He has welcomed us for God’s glory (Romans 15:7).
As a church body we are “devoted to teaching and fellowship” (Acts 2:42a), wanting to be a place of prayer and care (v. 42b-47), truth and love (Ephesians 4:15). We are a reforming and transforming congregation, we trust, conforming more to the image of Christ, for the good of our families, and the nations.
