MINISTRIES AND GROUPS
Our formal liturgy uses elements from Biblical theology and the best of church tradition to lay out a pattern for us to worship. We hear God’s call to worship, we confess our sins to God, we hear God’s pardoning word in the gospel, we read God’s holy Scriptures and hear them expounded, we commune with God through the Lord’s Supper, and we are commissioned by God to go out into the world to spread the gospel. Singing is also a central action of our worship. We encourage all of the congregation to sing out joyfully and rigorously with the best of traditional hymnody as well as the Biblical psalms. The music in our worship is not a performance for the congregation but instead an element of the people’s worship which they offer to God. Our worship is for all the people of God. From the youngest to the oldest, families and singles, everyone is included in our worship and called to lift their voices to the Lord. The people are the living temple, the house of prayer for all nations, and so we all join together to be the church.
The Lord Jesus Christ has promised to build His church, and in so doing overcome the very gates of hell. We rejoice that God has called us to be a part of this everlasting work. In our desire to serve Him faithfully, we adhere to the following distinctives as a local assembly of Christians. The Glory of God: We seek to glorify God in all that we do as His people. We believe that the triune God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit – is active in every aspect of our lives. We understand that we glorify God most as we obey His Word and find our joy in Him. The Centrality of the Church: We view the church as the new humanity, entrusted with the gospel, and used by God to bring about the renewal of all creation. We believe that the Lord renews His covenant with us each Lord’s Day through the gifts of His Word and Sacraments, and that these gifts are for all of God’s covenant people (including children). We welcome the work of elders to actively shepherd us as saints for the good of the church and the world. Biblical Households: We seek to model and enjoy the distinct masculine and feminine roles that God has revealed in His Word. We strive to cultivate a vision for multi-generational covenant succession among our families. We strongly encourage Christian education so that our children would not be exasperated, but brought up fully in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. Covenant Community: We believe that our commitment and interest in one another goes beyond Sundays and includes the encouragement we can bring to one another throughout the week. We understand that discipline, instruction, and sacrifice is an ongoing part of our lives together as Christ’s disciples. We believe that love – the forgotten mark of the church – is essential to our witness to one another and the world. Building the Kingdom: We believe that God is in the process of building His kingdom through faithful worship, preaching, and ministry. We seek to extend the kingdom by loving our neighbors as ourselves and faithfully fulfilling the vocations that God has given us. We labor in humble confidence and joy because our hope is based not on the circumstances of any given day, but on God’s faithfulness to His Word.
