We are committed to the authority and sufficiency of Scripture, and therefore we are committed to faithful exposition which entails the reading, explaining, and application of consecutive texts each Lord's Day. This enables us to go deep into God's Word, exploring its fullness, while safeguarding us from aberrant teaching that results from taking verses out of their context and the temptation to skip over difficult passages. Passage by passage, book by book, we desire to unpack and apply the whole counsel of God to our hearts and lives.
We believe the biblical model of leadership to be a plurality of qualified elders in each local church. Not only is this taught in Scripture, but it provides mutual accountability, collective wisdom, and a sharing of the joys and burdens of ministry among the elders while ensuring that the flock is properly taught, protected, and shepherded.
We practice baptism by immersion for those who have professed faith in Christ. Baptism is a symbol of the believer's identification with Christ and His church.
