About Us

Truth and love.  Christ's church should be full of both.  We are a Reformed Church.  To be Reformed is to hold to "Historic Christianity", to believe in the sovereignty of God, the authority, and sufficiency of His inerrant Scripture, and the necessity of God's grace.  


To find out more about us you can read below, check out our distinctives, contact us, or stop by for a visit.  We would love to meet you!


Reformed:  To be Reformed is to adhere to the purist teachings of the Bible. Scripture is considered the ultimate authority in matters of life and faith.  The doctrines (teachings) we hold to are the very same ones that were the consensus of the five first centuries of the church: 


  • One omnipotent, benevolent God, distinct from creation.
  • Trinitarianism: one God in three eternally existent persons, equal in power and glory.
  • Christ, the God-Man, the one mediator between God & the human race, incarnate, crucified, resurrected, ascended, & coming again.
  • Humanity created in the image of God, yet tragically fallen & profoundly in need of restoration to God through Christ.
  • The Visible Church: the community of the redeemed, indwelt by the Holy Spirit; the body of Christ on earth.
  • The one, holy, universal, and apostolic church.
  • The Sacraments: (Communion & Baptism) visible signs and seals of the grace of God, ministering Christ’s love to us in our deep need.
  • The Christian life: characterized by the prime theological virtues of repentance, faith, hope, and love.


Another distinctive of reformed theology, or doctrine is the 5 Solas:


  • The authority of Scripture: Sola scriptura (Scripture alone)
  • The basis of salvation: Sola Gratia (Grace alone)
  • The means of salvation: Sola Fide (Faith alone)
  • The merit of salvation: Solus Christus (Christ alone)
  • And all for: Soli Deo Gloria – (God's glory alone) 


Lastly, reformed theology also is marked by belief in the Doctrines of Grace: 


  • Total Depravity (Man is completely helpless in his sinful state, is under the wrath of God, and can in no way please God. Total depravity also means that man will not naturally seek to know God, until God graciously prompts him to do so (Genesis 6:5; Jeremiah 17:9; Romans 3:10-18).
  • Unconditional Election ( God, from eternity past, has chosen to save a great multitude of sinners, which no man can number (Romans 8:29-30; 9:11; Ephesians 1:4-6,11-12).  
  • Limited Atonement (Christ took the judgment for the sin of the elect upon Himself and thereby paid for their lives with His death. In other words, He did not simply make salvation “possible,” He actually obtained it for those whom He had chosen (Matthew 1:21; John 10:11; 17:9; Acts 20:28; Romans 8:32; Ephesians 5:25).
  • Irresistible Grace (In his fallen state, man resists God’s love, but the grace of God working in his heart makes him desire what he had previously resisted. That is, God’s grace will not fail to accomplish its saving work in the elect (John 6:37,44; 10:16).
  • Perseverance of the Saints ( God protects His saints from falling away; thus, salvation is eternal (John 10:27-29; Romans 8:29-30; Ephesians 1:3-14). 


Fellowship:   The Greek words translated “fellowship” in the New Testament mean essentially a partnership to the mutual benefit of those involved. 


Christian fellowship, then, is the mutually beneficial relationship between Christians, who can’t have the identical relationship with those outside the faith.

Christian fellowship exists because God has enabled it by His grace. Those who believe the gospel are united in the Holy Spirit through Christ to the Father, and that unity in God's truth is the basis of fellowship.  Our unity is in truth first, so that we may love biblically.


A fellowship of believers first share the same faith in the same truth.  Then they are able to share their other gifts and blessings as God leads.  In this way we can be like the first century church in Acts 4 having "all things common, no one in need found among us, and unified in one heart and soul in our right understanding of God's word."


In doing this we are made not only more spiritually mature, but are better able to be gracious, knowledgeable, and loving ambassadors of Christ; reaching out to those around us with the good news of the forgiveness of sins.  


The importance of true Christian fellowship is that it reinforces these things in our mind and helps us to focus on Christ and His desires and goals for us. As iron sharpens iron, in true Christian fellowship Christians sharpen one another's faith and stir one another to exercise that faith in love and good works, all to God’s glory.  (Hebrews 10:25, 1 Thessalonians 5:11)


Church:  While "Reformed" and "Fellowship" were our choice in defining who we are, "Church" is mandated by God — as revealed in His Word. It is His designation for the assembly of people called by His name. As such, our course has been charted by God; our destiny has been planned by God; our members have been chosen by God; our purposes have been defined by God....All for Soli Deo Gloria.
