We would be glad to answer any questions you have about our ministry and our doctrine. We believe doctrine is very important in our ministry and our daily lives as individuals. We cannot err from the truths of the Bible in our personal lives and expect to be right with God. The world says, “follow your heart,” but our feelings are easily swayed. “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9).
We believe in preaching the Bible as it is written and interpreted in context and through much prayer. The responsibility of the Word is not taken lightly. We must handle the Bible with care. “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12)
We take great care to ensure your children are safe physically, mentally, and spiritually. We strive to make their time with us fun and engaging, but even more importantly we strive to teach them foundational truths found in the Bible. Children are so impressionable, and we believe it is the best time to start teaching them the Bible. The church is not to take the place of the parents. The Bible makes it very clear the parents are the primary spiritual guidance of their children, but we work to encourage the training they receive at home and help the parents by providing safe and spiritually growing environments.
We have classes for all ages. We break the children out by ages to give them the appropriate learning level and interaction. The adults stay in the main auditorium and study the Bible through an interactive discussion time lead by our pastor or one of deacons.
We are all in different stages of spiritual growth. We should all be discipling and being discipled all the time. None of us have come to the point of perfection, so we can all help each other grow.
Fellowship is a very important part of growing as a church. We cannot connect and help each other grow without the personal connection. Many of us come early and stay late to fellowship with each other, but we also have specific times of organized gatherings together. These usually involve the wonderful invetion – food.
Mission Trips (teens)
As children grow into adults, they pass through a very important stage of development – teenage years. Often these are thought of as the rebelious years, but we like to look at it as the years of growth towards independence. We like to help them grow and expand their world through missions trips. These help the teens understand the world around them is more than the little circle they think they understand.
Not far down the road is a well organized Christian camp. We have been sending our kids to Camp Chetek for many years.
