Treasuring Scripture Together

We have stated that our key core value as a church is the Bible. The revelation from God to man and our only authority for belief and behavior. This has to be much more than a stated value; it has to be an actual reality in the life of our church. We want to be a group of people that […]

Stop Amputating the Bible

One of the reasons we said that we struggle with remaining consistent in reading and understanding the Bible is because we often fragment the Bible. You can read about that here.
