"The LORD recompense thy work, and a full reward be given thee of the LORD God of Israel, under whose wings thou art come to trust." (Ruth 2:12)

Join us this Wednesday as we study...



At our church, we have four fundamental core values that we believe everything at church is supposed to center around. What are these core values that we treasure so dearly?

1. GLORIFY THE SAVIOUR – Jesus Christ purchased the church with his blood according to Acts 20:28. The Bible also teaches us that Christ is to have preeminence in the church. (Colossians 1:18) Everything that the church does should be in line with glorifying the Saviour. We must be sure that our services glorify the Saviour. We must be sure that our music glorifies the Saviour. We must be sure that our actions as a church glorify the Saviour. Christ our Saviour is worthy of our glorification!

2. GO WITH THE GOSPEL – Matthew 28:19-20 makes it very clear that it is the job of the church to fulfill the great commission. The commission starts with the propagation of the Gospel. The church must remain focused on taking the Gospel to a lost and dying world. There are so many people who have never heard the true message of Salvation. It is the responsibility of the church to take the Gospel to them. It is important for the church to give monies that help missionaries go overseas to preach the Gospel, but that is not enough. We ourselves must be going with the Gospel in a personal soul-winning effort.

3. GROWTH IN CHRIST – The church is responsible for teaching people how to grow in their Christian life. According to John 3 a person who trusts Christ is born again and begin as “newborn babes” who are in need of being fed the sincere milk of the Word. (I Peter 2:2) The teaching and preaching at the house of God is done to this end, that the people of God may be able to grow in Christ.

4. GRACE TOWARD THE BRETHREN – It is mentioned multiple times in the book of John that we are to love one another. The church should promote such behavior among believers. The word gracious means favorable, kind, friendly, benevolent, merciful, and forgiving. All of these describe how we should act toward our fellow believers in Christ. In John 13:34 Jesus states that we are to “love one another, as I have loved you”. We ought to be gracious towards our brothers and sisters in Christ.
