Overview of Service/Beliefs:
“God created humanity to live in covenant with God.  As sinful creatures, we have broken that covenant and stand in need of redemption.  Because God truly loves us, God acted through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ to bring us salvation and the hope of eternal life. God’s love comes alive in us by the work of the Holy Spirit.  The Spirit works in both our personal experience and in the common life of the church. We are part of Christ’s universal church.  We enter the church through baptism.  In Holy Communion, we celebrate the presence of Christ and find strength for Christian living.

We believe that the reign of God is both a present and future reality.  This prospect gives us hope in our present actions. We believe that Scripture contains everything necessary for salvation.  We believe in justification by grace through faith in Christ and in the general ministry of all Christians. We believe that the church is one in Jesus Christ.  We express our unity in hymns and liturgy, in the historic creeds, and in the belief in one holy, catholic, and apostolic church.” -

The service typically lasts about one hour

Service includes praise and prayer, Scripture readings, a Sermon, and sometimes a communion.
