Purpose

The purpose of this church is to glorfy the triune God of the Scripture and to enjoy Him forever1 by promoting His worship,2 evangelizing sinners,3 and edifying the saints.4 Therefore, we are committed to the proclamation of the whole counsel of God throughout the world.5 This includes God’s perfect Law and the glorious Gospel of His grace,6 the defense of the “faith once for all delivered to the saints”,7 and the faithful administration of the ordinances of the New Covenant.8 The primary means for the accomplishment of this purpose are prayer and the public and private ministry of the Word of God.9 We may also, for the accomplishment of this purpose, use other means and engage in other ministries which, in the judgement of the elders, are biblically justified.
