Forgiveness, transformation, salvation, and eternal life - all for FREE

  • We believe in one eternal God who is Three Eternal Persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

  • We believe there is one primary source of understanding: The Bible, the innerant Word of God.

  • We believe there is one way to forgiveness, salvation, transformation, being set free, and eternal life: Belief in Christ and repentance.

  • We believe no one is beyond the love, salvation, and transformation that is offered through belief in Jesus Christ.

  • Our church is open to everyone! Through the active participation in this Body of Christ, disciples are made.  Through the love of the Father, belief in Christ, and the power of the Holy Spirit, people are changed, become more holy, and can love more.  We leave our church more like Christ than when we entered it.

  • We believe in the limitless power of prayer.

  • We want people to be "real" and to come with all their "warts and beauty marks."

  • We believe mission and outreach must come with both a hand up and the Gospel message.

  • Our theology could be called traditionally orthodox or evangelical, but not legalistic.  We are in the Wesleyan tradition and it is the foundation of our understanding of God's grace.

  • We believe that God is filled with both perfect and divine judgment and justice, and perfect and divine love and mercy.

  • We have fun spending time together as a family.

  • We want you to come in and try us out, or we will reach out to you!

  About us

 

Founded in 1876, 100 years after the founding of our nation, we are an active, fun, and growing church community made up of everyday people of all ages, with all kinds of backgrounds, and in many different places in our walk with Christ.  All are welcome to learn, grow, experience forgiveness, be lifted up and encouraged, and be transformed by the Holy Spirit to be more like Christ. 

We have many ways for people to share their talents and gifts.  We are traditionally orthodox in our beliefs (not legalistic), we focus on the Bible as the inerrant Word of God, we are Wesleyan in our understanding of God's grace, and we give thanks for God allowing one way to salvation, and this is belief in Christ.

There is never a dull moment in this Body of Christ, so come and check us out!
