FAQ What denomination are you?We are an independent church. This means we do not belong to a larger denomination. Though every denomination has some truth, none of them are 100% correct. We like being free to take those things each group gets right and leave the things that don't line up with the Bible.
Statement of Faith
Who is the Pastor?
Our pastor is Bro Jon Tracy. He apprenticed for two years with our founding pastor, Bro John Wiltse, before taking the pastorate.
What Bible Translation do you use?We use the King James. It is what most of us have been raised with and we are most familiar with. We do refer to other translations on occasion to help our understanding of a scripture though.
Why Use the King James?
But I don't own a King James Bible.That's OK. Most of the scriptures we use during service are posted on the screen up front and we have plenty of extra Bibles you are welcome to use. And if you don't own a Bible, just let us know. We'll fix that!
Do you have a dress code?We believe boys should look like boys and girls should look like girls and important body parts should be covered (including the entire bottom), but otherwise, no. We don't care what you look like.
Do I have to stay for lunch Sunday?No. We would enjoy your company, but we understand that people have other plans sometimes.
Do I have to bring something if I do want to eat?Not at all. This is a time for those who like to cook to
Can I come late?We try to start all services on time, but we won't lock the door to keep you out. We look forward to seeing you whenever you can make it.
Do I have to agree with you on everything in order to attend?I have yet to meet any two people who agree on everything. And if we did, one of us wouldn't be necessary, would we? The important thing is that we all love the Lord and honor His Word.
What is "Family Integrated?"We do not segregate people according to their age. The whole family worships together. Parents know what their children have been taught and children see the example of their parent's worship. The family is strengthened when the responsibility for teaching the children is put with the parents where God originally intended.
But I don't know that much about God. How am I supposed to teach my own children?You can teach them what you do know and learn the rest together. We recommend daily family devotionals: a time to read the Bible and pray together. There are many good resources out there to help you and we are always willing to help, too.
What is your view about education?We believe education to be vitally important. "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom." Psalms 111:10, Proverbs 1:7, Proverbs 9:10.
We believe that if at all possible parents should teach their own children since they are the ones given the responsibility by God and who will have to answer for the results. We do understand, however, that sometimes a traditional private school is the best option.
