We will regularly observe the ordinances of baptism and communion. We believe that these are extremely valuable, as God has given them to the church as a physical reminder of the Gospel and a means of sanctifying grace. Communion serves as a great gospel response to any sermon that centers God’s people on Christ’s finished work. Likewise, baptism represents our identification and participation in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
Preaching will be Gospel-centered. Primarily we will work through books of the Bible. On occasions we’ll have stand alone sermons or brief topical sermon series. Our preaching will attempt to apply the truths of the scripture to our hearts and minds, increasing our joy and helping us to live out the Gospel on a daily basis. The sermons will be available on our website.
The songs we sing will be Biblically sound and relevant to the sermon. We will sing a mixture of modern and ancient hymns, and (hopefully soon) songs written by some of our members. We realize any musical style will accommodate the tastes of some while it will be a struggle for others. Our desire is that all worshipers will let the gospel-centered content drive our affections even if some prefer a different instrument, volume level, or arrangement. Beyond the music, we really believe God is present in a special way when we gather to worship, so we will be passionate and joyful about engaging the Spirit of God in our gathering.
At the end of each service, we will have men and women available to pray with you. We will make clear who they are and where you can find them. We believe prayer is vital to our lives, and we would love to pray with and for you as you have need. If you have any further questions,feel free to email Bryan Padgett (Lead Planting Pastor) He’d love to assist you any way he can.
