Timeless or trendy? Malls are trendy. Churches should feel timeless. With the forceful current of constant change sweeping over every part of our lives, people have the need to connect with something enduring and firm. We believe Christ designed the church to fulfill that need by representing an eternal kingdom and ageless truth with no need to imitate the culture. We want you to know that there’s still a church that feels like a church. It won’t feel like a rock concert, comedy club, or motivational seminar. It’s not old-fashioned, as in 50 years ago. It is timeless, as in 2000 years ago.
Dynamic, passionate preaching straight from Bible still brings more lasting change than comedy routines, drama, or motivational talks. Come discover the benefit of Bible preaching.
The rumor that masculine men hate church isn’t entirely true. Come discover an environment where plenty of real men still believe God expects them to step up and provide strong, loving leadership in the church and in their families.
Most church music amounts to dumbing down the lyrics and cranking up the volume to build interest. The hymns we sing still generate an attitude toward God that is anything but lifeless and boring.
Casual is all the rage in America institutions, but God deserves better. While you won’t find a judgmental spirit here, you will find a place that still believes reverence is right for the presence of God.
Our culture’s experiments with the family have left the American home in a mess. We still teach the biblical roles for the family as the best answer and as our only hope for stable, fulfilled homes.
God doesn’t need the Top 40 or the latest fads to be exciting. We still enjoy several timeless practices that stir the soul in a way that strobe lights and dancing in the aisles can never manufacture.
