For those unable to receive Holy Communion: Dear Jesus, I believe that thou art truly present in the Holy Sacrament. I love thee above all things, and I desire to possess thee within my soul. And since I cannot now receive thee sacramentally, I beseech thee to come spiritually into my heart. I unite myself to thee, together with all thy faithful people gathered around every altar of thy Church, and I embrace thee with all the affections of my soul. Never permit me to be separated from thee. Amen.
Our preaching and teaching is firmly grounded in the holy Bible as God's Word.
Our worship is liturgical and sacramental. We believe God is present to us in a special way through fellowship (i.e., the gathering of the Christian community for worship), the proclamation of his holy Word, the celebration and administration of his holy Sacraments (e.g., holy Baptism and holy Eucharist) and through our ministry to others in the Name of Jesus.
We attempt to offer the very best of the evangelical, charismatic and catholic streams merging them into a flowing river as experienced in the ancient Church.
We believe that we are called to love and worship God with all of heart, soul, mind and strength and to love our neighbors as ourselves.
Most of all, we are called to make Jesus Christ known in the hearts and lives of our people and all whom we come into contact with and minister to. Jesus Christ is Life and Salvation for all who know him and are known by him. Come to know Jesus through a wonderful and loving church community, his life-giving Word and Gospel, his holy Sacraments and through our several ministries.
