The Glory of God: We will always seek to honor and glorify the Triune God alone in everything we do as a church (1 Cor. 10:31). As the Westminster Shorter Catechism Question and Answer 1 reminds us, "Man’s chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever."
The Authority of the Bible: We will always endeavor to uphold the Bible as the final authority for faith and life and humbly submit ourselves to its doctrines (teachings).
The Gospel of Christ: We will always faithfully preach Christ and him crucified as the only hope for every person in this world (1 Cor. 2:1-5; Gal. 1:6-9).
Evangelism and Discipleship: We will always seek to evangelize and also disciple those who come to the Christian faith so that they can be rooted, built up and established in their faith (Col. 2:6-7; Matt. 28:18-20).
The Purity of the Church: We will always seek to maintain the purity of the church by observing church discipline as commanded by Christ the King and the Head of the Church. The goal of church discipline is not necessarily to punish the unrepentant sinner but to “reclaim and gain him, deter others from the like offenses, purge out sin which might infect the church, vindicate the honor of Christ, and the holy profession of the gospel, and to prevent the wrath of God” (Westminster Confession of Faith, Chapter 30; 1 Cor. 5:1-13; 1 Tim. 5:20; 1 Tim. 1:20; Jude 23; 1 Cor. 11: 27-34).
Gospel Deeds of Love, Mercy and Justice: We believe that we are called to be the light and salt of the word primarily by preaching and living out the gospel of Christ which then moves our hearts and hands into deeds of love, mercy and justice to the glory of God (Matt. 9:35-36; James 2:14-18; Gal. 6:10).
Not a Perfect but a More Pure Church: We do not seek to be a perfect church because we will never be until the day when Christ will present his Church to himself “in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish” (Eph. 5:27). However, by God’s grace, we will always endeavor to become a more pure church as the Westminster Confession of Faith reminds us “Churches…are more or less pure, according as the doctrine of the gospel is taught and embraced, ordinances (Baptism and the Lord’s Supper) administered, and public worship performed more or less purely in them. The purest churches under heaven are subject both to mixture and error…Nevertheless, there shall be always a church on earth, to worship God according to his will” (Chapter 25.4-5).
