Our Mission...... As men, women, and children united in faith in Christ Jesus, we believe he commanded us to “go and make disciples.” We therefore will proclaim the Gospel of Christ through our words and actions to the community, campus, and others. We will teach God’s word in its truth and purity to help each other grow and mature in faith preparing us, God’s people, for “works of service.”

November 1, 2015, Reformation, Pastor Clayton Welch. It should not surprise us that error runs rampant through the world and that both nature and nations are so often in chaos. For that is exactly what our Savior has foretold. Each error, each natural disaster, each country in turmoil should drive us to cling all the more tenaciously to his Word by which alone we are saved in the hour of judgment. For without his pure Word, there is only faithless error, fear and torment, and finally a total separation from grace in the day of judgment. To retain the Word in all of its truth and purity and then to share it, those are the goals of true children of the Reformation.
Pastor Clayton Welch Speaks on the Word of God from Hebrews 4:9-16 - God Gives Us a Break
The final rest is certain because Christ's work is certain and because God's Word is certain. How terrible it would be, given that certainty, if we would fall back again under the wrath of God through unbelief and the other willful sins that flow from it. Since the rest is certain, let us hold fast to the work of Christ by which it was won, and to the faithful confession of the Word, by which it is made our own. For with the sure work of Christ and with his certain Word, we always have access to God's grace in our weakness and his help for our service.
Jesusâ€™ farewell discourse continues from the previous week. The Holy Spirit is promised to the disciples, and they are comforted by the Lordâ€™s promise: that he will not leave them orphaned but will return to them. Jesus exhorts them to show love for their Lord by giving loving obedience to his commands.
"Jesus Is Worth Listening To" - Matthew 17:1-9. Sermon by Pastor Clayton Welch on Transfiguration Sunday, February 26, 2017. As Jesus prepares to go to Jerusalem to offer up his life for the world, he is transfigured in glory before Peter, James and John on the mountaintop. Moses and Elijah flank the Lord and attest to his glory while the Father speaks words of loving approval of his Son.
Look at the Coming Christ and Don't Just Say You're Sorry
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! To know Christ in faith is the meaning and purpose of this life. Jesus tells the parable of a "fool" who thought the amount of material possessions he had were what gave his life value. The writer of Ecclesiastes and Paul also warn against letting the things of this world blind us to our real goal- eternal life.
