In Acts 6: 4 Peter said, “But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.” There was a time when the bible was considered the foundation of knowledge and education. But in this modern, secular age in which we all live, God’s word as presented in the pages of the bible is too often forgotten. Even within the church, many Christian’s know far too little about God’s word and how it applies to them. In Hosea 4: 6 God said, “My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge.” For this reason our worship services, bible studies, and outreach ministries are all dedicated to helping people learn more of God’s word and its relevance to their lives.

Jesus once said, “Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for of such are the Kingdom of God.” The importance of children to God can never be overly emphasized. We believe that it is the responsibility of the church to assist parents in teaching their children about God and their Savior, Jesus Christ. Our bible classes and programs for children are dedicated to this end. Our Sabbath school lessons are based primarily on the Youth Educational Adventures program of Christian Educational Ministries.
II Peter 3: 18 says: “But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” A believer’s spiritual development should be important to the church. We did not turn to Jesus Christ because we had everything we needed. Rather, we turned to Jesus Christ because we were hungry, thirsty, lost, lonely, and without hope. The church should never forget its responsibility to serve the individual believer while reaching out to the unbeliever. We believe that we should help others grow in God’s grace as they become more and more like Jesus Christ.
