What to expect

Here are answers to one of the top questions people have about church: “What should I expect when I go?” We hope this helps with any questions you may have. If not, please feel free to contact us below.

KIDS PROGRAM

Our Kids Ministry is a parental support team that is designed to help parents disciple their children in accordance with Scripture. When children are entrusted into the care of the church, we will seek to provide fun, faith-nurturing activities that fit their needs and support family discipleship. Kids program classes for kids from birth-5th grade run simultaneously with the worship service each Sunday morning.

All of our Children’s Ministry Workers have gone through the Ministry Safe Training System and have a recent clear criminal background check with Checkr on file with us. We use a digital check in system. When checked in each child receives and adhesive name tag that we stick directly to their clothing. An alpha numeric code is also printed on the name tag that matches a code printed on a card given to the parent or guardian who dropped off the child. Children are only permitted to leave with someone possessing that card upon return. We also have a two worker policy – meaning your kids are never left alone with a single adult.

We hope these facts help put your mind at ease, but if you have any other questions for our staff and volunteers, don’t be afraid to reach out! We want to make sure your family has a great experience together.

BELIEFS & AFFILIATIONS

Beliefs

God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God the Father reigns with providential care over His universe. He is all powerful, all knowing, all loving, and all wise. The Holy Spirit is present in the world to make people aware of their need for Jesus Christ. He lives in all Christians from the moment of salvation, providing them with power for living and guidance in doing what is right. Jesus Christ is the only Son of God. He is fully God and fully man. He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless human life, and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death, and ascended into heaven where he sits at the right hand of God.

The Bible is God’s word to us. Human authors wrote the Bible under the supernatural guidance of the Holy Spirit. Because of its divine inspiration, the Bible is the supreme source of truth for all people.

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.

It is the duty and privilege of every follower of Christ, and of every church of the Lord Jesus Christ, to endeavor to make disciples of all nations. We believe that disciples are most effectively made in the context of the local church. Therefore, church planting and missions are of utmost importance. The Lord Jesus Christ has commanded the preaching of the gospel to all nations. It is the duty of every Christian to seek constantly to win the lost to Christ.

There are two ordinances for the New Testament church. The first, baptism, is the immersion of a believer in water. It is an act of obedience symbolizing the believer’s faith in Christ Jesus. Second, the Lord’s Supper, is a symbolic act of obedience whereby followers memorialize the death of the Redeemer and anticipate His second coming.

*We use an amended version of the 1853 New Hampshire Baptist Confessions as an elucidation.
