“Built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone”

By Mark Dever

What is a healthy church?

“A healthy church is not a church that’s perfect and without sin. It has not figured everything out. Rather, it’s a church that continually strives to take God’s side in the battle against the ungodly desires and deceits of the world, our flesh, and the devil. It’s a church that continually seeks to conform itself to God’s Word.”

“When a person becomes a Christian, he doesn’t just join a local church because it’s a good habit for growing in spiritual maturity. He joins a local church because it’s the expression of what Christ has made him–a member of the body of Christ.”

“The church has not been given authority to make commandments; it is the duty of the church to obey the commandments already made. It is not the prerogative nor the privilege of any church to modify, minimize or in any way obscure . . . any commandment, of Jesus Christ.”

Our Core Values


The foundation of our church is the truth of God’s Word, the Bible. We seek to believe and obey all that He has revealed in the Scriptures.


We were made to worship. We worship God as our Creator and Redeemer. We believe in whole-life worship, seeking to honor Him in all we do.


We express our dependence on God through prayer. We recognize that we cannot accomplish anything on our own but must rely fully on His grace and power.


The Christian life is not to be lived in isolation. God has gathered a people, the church, for believers to grow together in their relationship with Jesus Christ.


We seek to make disciples of all nations by sharing the life-changing message of the Gospel with those who are lost and discipling those who put their trust in Christ.
