Due to COVID-19, our Sunday services will be outdoors.


New Testament Sightings

We see in the Bible how the church functioned as a local body of believers.

One another commandments

Over 50 "one another" commands. Romans 12:10 "Love one another deeply as brothers and sisters. Take the lead in honoring one another"

Christians are responsible to submit to specific leaders

Hebrews 13:17 “Obey your leaders and submit to them”

Christian leaders are responsible for specific sheep

Acts 20:28 “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers”

Christians exclude “false believers” 

1 Corinthians 5:13 “Expel the wicked person from among you”

Home Church Covenant

As a people saved by the grace of Jesus Christ, we give our lives to God, and having been baptized upon our profession of faith, in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, relying on the Holy Spirit, joyfully covenant with each other:

We will work and pray for unity in the church through the Spirit.

We will walk together in brotherly/sisterly love, care for and watch over each other, and faithfully correct and guide one another.

We will commit to gather together regularly through Sunday worship, Home Groups, and discipleship relationships, and pray for ourselves and one another.

We will seek the salvation of our family and friends by pursuing them with love, persuading them with the gospel, and praying for God to save.

We will rejoice at each other's happiness and strive with tenderness and sympathy to bear each other's burdens and sorrows.

We will seek, by God’s help, to live carefully in the world, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, and remembering that, as we have been voluntarily buried by baptism and raised again from the symbolic grave, so there is on us a special obligation now to lead a new and holy life.

We will work together for the continuance of a faithful evangelical ministry in this church, as we sustain its worship, ordinances, discipline, and doctrines.

We will contribute cheerfully and regularly to the support of the ministry, the expenses of the church, and the spread of the Gospel through all nations.

We will, when we move from this place, as soon as possible, unite with some other church where we can carry out the spirit of this covenant and the principles of God's Word.

May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with us all. Amen.
