We Believe!

The early church distilled their common beliefs into a simple presentation of Bible doctrine.  Later, as heresies became prevalent, they had to clarify and defend the doctrines revealed in Scripture.  Our sermon series, "We Believe", delves into these basic doctrines upon which our salvation and Christian walk are built.  We hope to strengthen the foundation of our faith as we discover why these truths are so important.

Joy for the Journey
