About Our Church

Join us for Service this Sunday at 11:00 am

We Believe

1. We believe that God created all things.

2. We believe Jesus Christ is the son of the living God.

3. We accept Scripture as God’s Word.

4. We celebrate the Eucharist weekly

5. We practice baptism by immersion also by affusion (pouring) and aspersion (sprinkling). We have a baptismal in the church near the altar but go to the lake to immerse.

6. We recognize and celebrate diversity among all people and within Christ’s Church.
