At Faith, we strive to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere for everyone in attendance. As you enter our facility you will be warmly greeted as we want everyone to feel welcome. During our service, you will hear and experience things like church announcements and news; songs will be sang that are God honoring (our music ranges from classic hymns to beautiful contemporary songs); we will spend time lifting our needs to God in prayer; we will read the Bible and hear a life applicable message from His Word; we also have a time of offering/giving to further God’s work.

Yes! Our nursery is available on Sunday for both our 9:30 and 10:30 service hours! Our nursery is for children aged 3 and under. For children 11 and under, we have two opportunities for them! During the 9:30 hour, we have a growth group class where will experience a time of singing, prayer and an exciting lesson from the Bible. During our 10:30 worship hour, the children will be dismissed after the congregational singing. At this time they will experience their own time of prayer and Bible study in a safe and fun learning environment, We call this the “Children’s Chapel”.

Salvation involves the redemption of the whole man, and is offered freely to all who accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, who by His own blood obtained eternal redemption for the believer. In its broadest sense salvation includes regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification. There is no salvation apart from personal faith in Jesus Christ as Lord. If you are looking for How to gain Salvation then click here for and watch the video explaining the how.

A. Regeneration, or the new birth, is a work of God’s grace whereby believers become new creatures in Christ Jesus. It is a change of heart wrought by the Holy Spirit through conviction of sin, to which the sinner responds in repentance toward God and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Repentance and faith are inseparable experiences of grace.

Repentance is a genuine turning from sin toward God. Faith is the acceptance of Jesus Christ and commitment of the entire personality to Him as Lord and Saviour.

B. Justification is God’s gracious and full acquittal upon principles of His righteousness of all sinners who repent and believe in Christ. Justification brings the believer unto a relationship of peace and favor with God.

C. Sanctification is the experience, beginning in regeneration, by which the believer is set apart to God’s purposes, and is enabled to progress toward moral and spiritual maturity through the presence and power of the Holy Spirit dwelling in him. Growth in grace should continue throughout the regenerate person’s life.

D. Glorification is the culmination of salvation and is the final blessed and abiding state of the redeemed.
