About Our Church
As individuals and as a community of believers, we continually seek to grow deeper in our relationship with Christ. Our prayer is that the love of God would be so evident in the way that we walk, talk, and love others, that they would be drawn to the ultimate salvation found in Jesus Christ.

Here is information about what we believe
We believe in one God in three manifestations. God and Father of all, Jesus Christ His only begotten Son and Holy Spirit, God’s expressive force within born-again believers. All three are in perfect unity and make up what is known as the Eternal Godhead.
We believe the Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments, is the only infallible, inspired Word of God, and that its authority is ultimate, final, and eternal.
Christ’s vicarious death on the cross paid the penalty for the sins of the whole world, but its benefits are only applicable to those who receive Jesus Christ as personal Savior. Healing – body, soul, and spirit – and all of God’s provisions for His saints, are provided for in the atonement, but these must be appropriated.
We are saved by grace and not of any personal merit. We acknowledge and accept the salvation offered by God as a free gift of God, based on the merits of the death of His son, and its appropriation by faith. Salvation should produce an active lifestyle of loving obedience and service to Jesus Christ our Savior.
We believe that the Scriptures portray the life of the saint in this world to be one of balance between what is imputed to us as Christians and what is imparted to us according to our faith and maturity. The shortcomings of the individual and of the Church are because of the still progressing sanctification of the saints. To remain faithful through all circumstances of life requires dependence upon the Holy Spirit and a willingness to die to personal desires and passions.
The goal of the Church is to make disciples of all nations and to present the saints complete in Christ.
The total immersion in water symbolizes the commitment to Christ while The Lord’s Supper is a commemoration of the death of the Lord and is done in remembrance of Him until He comes again.
What We Value
We believe that God has given us a specific set of core values that are unique to who we are at Word of Truth. These values guide us as we seek to fulfill our ultimate mission to know Christ and to make Him known.
We believe that an active relationship with God is the cornerstone in a believer's life.
As believers, we represent Christ in all that we say and do even when no one is looking.
We intentionally establish life-giving relationships that challenge us to boldly live for Christ.
Our greatest expression of leadership is serving others with all of our hearts, minds, and souls.
