Our Ministry Desire and Goal

The gospel we proclaim is Biblically described as “the preaching of Jesus Christ” and in 1 Timothy 1:11 it is called “the glorious gospel of the blessed God,” the original language also translatable as “the glad tidings of the glory of the blessed God.” There is in the gospel the revelation of the glory of God. We believe firmly that those whom God redeems from sin and unto Himself through “Jesus Christ and Him crucified” come to behold His glory in the gospel. Yet the gospel is the record of a Man, His miraculous virgin birth, His perfect life, teachings, miracles, death, resurrection and ascension. He is a Man. But He is God and Man in one person. So that in this Man the glory of God is manifested, and as Paul the apostle taught in 2 Corinthians 4:6, there shines forth “the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.” He is our ministry, our life, our Saviour and our Lord. The preaching and expounding of the Word of God is central in all of our services, and the desire to ever increase in the knowledge of God in Christ our pursuit.

We also believe that the fruit of the new life in Christ is nothing less than the measure of our conformity to Him (2 Corinthians 3:18). Therefore, we are convinced that the truest way for the believer to glorify God is to reflect the image of Christ in character, conduct and testimony to the world. To this end we declare “the gospel of the grace of God” by using the means of expository Bible preaching. We do not endeavor to simply make people feel good, offer religious entertainment or merely the opportunity for social interaction. It is our fervent desire to give forth the truth as it is to men as they are and trust God to use His appointed means, as He is pleased. We are a close-knit church family, but our fellowship with one another is based solely upon our mutual union with Christ.

We cordially invite you to visit us and experience our ministry for yourself. You will find both our door and our hearts open to you. And, we trust, you will also find that our purpose is not to make a name for ourselves but to bring glory to our enthroned Lord, for “God hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name.”
