Accepting the Bible as the inspired word of God, our objective is to "sow the seed" of the gospel of Jesus Christ and reproduce a first-century congregation of God's family in a 21st-century setting. It is through the Bible that we determine what needs to be taught and what our work as a church should be. It is within the pages of God's book that we learn how He wants us to worship Him (John 4:23,24) and how we should live our lives (2 Peter 1:3). Appeals to human philosophies, experiences or feelings are inadequate. Only truth as originally revealed in scripture is authoritative.
