Core Values

 

     Expositional Preaching

 
We believe expositional preaching is the primary way the Bible should be preached.  We believe the best way to learn the Bible is through context and centrality.  For this reason our pastor typically preaches through books of the bible verse by verse and book by book.  We believe this enables our church body to learn the biblical truth in the context of a particular book, so that it can be applied to our lives today.  Expositional preaching seeks to exposit the biblical truth, explain it and apply that same truth to the hearers.  It minimizes the personal opinion of the preacher and provides authority to the message.  
 

   Christ Centered Worship

We believe that Jesus Christ is the person our worship is directed towards.  We believe prayer, biblical exposition, singing songs, public reading of scripture, responsive readings, the playing of instruments, giving, and observance of the ordinances (Lord’s Supper and Baptism)  are all a means of corporate worship.  The songs we sing are a blend of both old hymns and new praise chorusses.  We seek to focus our hearts attention on the lyric that we sing as opposed to the style by which it is presented.  We simply want to be sure that every aspect of our services point to and celebrate Jesus.   
 

Discipleship

We believe small group discipleship is a vital part of a person’s walk with Christ.  We encourage all believers to get plugged into a small group Bible study.  It provides encouragement, accountability, and friendship.   Our small groups typically journey through a book of the Bible together.  We have small groups available for every age group @ 9:15 a.m. every Sunday morning.  
 

Community Involvement

We believe that God has placed us in Amite, La for a specific purpose.  We want to be involved in our community positively and effectively.  We believe that God can use us for the good of our community and the stability of its future.  In order to ensure we are doing our part here, we ask ourselves a simple question.  If our church building was to disappear would our community notice a change?  
 

Evangelistic Outreach

We believe evangelistic outreach is the heartbeat of all we do.  We seek to glorify God by sharing the Gospel with people.  It is our desire to  mobilize ourselves locally, within North America, and Internationally for the purpose of advancing the Gospel and seeing people saved by God’s grace.
