"to know God, to know one another, and to make God known"


about us

Pastor Scott & Patricia Denham

Elders: Scott Denham, Jon Brenneman, and Ron Hoskins

what we believe:

The Bible is the inerrant/infallible, Word of God.

The Trinity—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, are co-equal in Deity

Salvation is by Grace through Faith in Christ, Alone

God is Sovereign and man is responsible

The supernatural gifts of the Holy Spirit


what we value:

Relational: Strong emphasis on Personal Relationship with God, and with one another.

Non-Traditional: We value faith-based relationship with God, over ritual and liturgy. We are informal—it does not matter what you wear on the outside, but rather who you are on the inside.

Music: Adult Contemporary (light-rock) style, blended with the occasional hymn. Praise & worship have high priority. We have a praise-band, not a choir.

Biblical: Scriptural preaching; strong promotion of discipleship in personal & corporate bible study.

Prayer: We value prayer, hearing God’s voice, and following where He leads.

Mission-minded: We have a welcoming heart to all non-Christians we come in contact with, desiring to win them to Christ through the message of the Gospel. God loves them and so do we!

Loving: Though imperfect, we have a genuine love for one another. We highly value acts of mercy, love, and fellowship.
