What an amazing privilege we have to gather together as a church, which means, “the called out ones.” By the grace of God we have been transferred from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. The Holy Spirit has transformed us by breathing spiritual life into what was once a spiritual corpse. He has drawn us into fellowship with the living God and with one another. Though we are still in the world, we are no longer of the world and our lives are now united to Christ who is the Head of the church, the body of Christ, in which we all find our very life and eternal joy.
As we come together to worship our glorious God on this Lord’s day, please remember that He is supreme in all we do. We must remain committed to God-exalting theology, to a God-centered worldview, to God-honoring worship, to God-driven convictions that result in a God-glorifying life.
May everything we do together in this place exalt the majesty and excellency of Christ, our Savior and God, for we are “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that (we) may proclaim the praises of Him who called (us) out of darkness into His marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).

Our Passion For The Pulpit
". . . we exist to equip the saints through expository preaching, teaching . . ."

Saints cannot be equipped for godly living and service apart from precise theology (Ephesians 4:11-16). This is the goal of expository preaching and teaching. The term "exposit" literally means to expound or explain in a detailed manner. Expository preaching is therefore a doctrinal proclamation of the Word of God derived from an exegetical process that is concerned only with the revelation of God, not the wisdom of man, and therefore carefully conveys the God-intended meaning of a text, passionately applying that meaning to the contemporary issues of life with an internal zeal and authority that cannot be extinguished.

Although this kind of preaching and teaching is rare in contemporary evangelicalism, since this was the method exemplified in the Bible (Neh. 8:8; Acts 7:2-53; 8:27-35; 20:26-27; Luke 4:16-22; 24:27, 32, 44-47), and since we have a divine mandate to "preach the Word" (2 Timothy 4:2), we believe that this is the God ordained method and we remain committed to it.

Current Study: An Exposition of the Letter to the Hebrews

There is no greater issue in the world for man to consider than the deity of Jesus Christ. Is He who He claimed to be? Is He God very God? If not, Christianity is a farce. If so, He is man’s only hope of salvation and eternal life. We invite you to join us on this wonderful spiritual journey that will certainly prove to be both encouraging and instructive as Pastor Harrell unearths the profound riches of the letter to the Hebrews. Here we will see the irrefutable evidence given to us from God Himself that indeed, Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah of Israel, Savior and Lord of all who place their trust in Him as their only hope of salvation. Here our hearts will be thrilled with the theme of this amazing epistle that exalts the supremacy of Christ over all things.
