What to Expect
Our typical preaching and teaching style is to work through entire books of the Bible, week by week. Each message stands on its own, but also builds on a common thread of the book.
We place a high value on the family unit – whatever that looks like for you. As a result, we ask for kids and students from fourth grade and higher to participate with their parents in our worship time. We have a safe and clean place for younger children where they will be taught a Bible story and encouraged with games, a craft and a snack.
With that said, children of all ages are always welcome in our worship time.

our mission‘Families sharing and showing Jesus with every family in our community, one family at a time.’
our visionWe believe the most effective evangelistic tool the church has today is evangelistic church planting. Because of this belief, we are deeply committed to seeing the gospel advance through church planting. Our vision for church planting is to plant 40 churches over the next 30 years.
Paul & Victoria have been fully assessed by the North American Mission Board’s Send Network, and were assessed as being ready for the work of planting RCM.
BELIEFSThe Bible, The Trinity, Salvation, The Church & The Ordinances, and The Family
We affirm the Baptist Faith & Message 2000 of the Southern Baptist Convention.
The New Testament speaks also of the church as the Body of Christ which includes all of the redeemed of all the ages, believers from every tribe, and tongue, and people, and nation.
The husband and wife are of equal worth before God, since both are created in God’s image. The marriage relationship models the way God relates to His people. A husband is to love his wife as Christ loved the church. He has the God-given responsibility to provide for, to protect, and to lead his family. A wife is to submit herself graciously to the servant leadership of her husband even as the church willingly submits to the headship of Christ. She, being in the image of God as is her husband and thus equal to him, has the God-given responsibility to respect her husband and to serve as his helper in managing the household and nurturing the next generation.
Children, from the moment of conception, are a blessing and heritage from the Lord. Parents are to demonstrate to their children God’s pattern for marriage. Parents are to teach their children spiritual and moral values and to lead them, through consistent lifestyle example and loving discipline, to make choices based on biblical truth. Children are to honor and obey their parents.

valuesGracious, Truthful, Generous and Bold
Our goal both individually and collectively is to live gracious lives. What does it mean to be gracious? Not being a jerk. That’s the simplest, and best way to describe gracious living.
Everything we do (and don’t do) is centered on the truth of God’s Word as revealed in the Bible.
God has been generous to us; we are generous to others in response.
To follow Jesus is a bold (yet incredibly rewarding) life choice – and we believe boldness is a necessity in all walks of life.
