We are committed to serving and reaching our local community. While there are many nearby churches that believers from Penhold could attend, we believe that the people of Penhold need to have a community of believers meeting and ministering in their own community. We want to share the good news of Jesus Christ with our neighbors – with the people who live and work right here in our community.
We are committed to making disciples of Jesus Christ. We are not satisfied with gaining “church attenders” or even “church members”. We want to see people changed by the Holy Spirit who increasingly know, love, and obey Jesus Christ and are passionate about helping others do likewise.
We are committed to meeting the needs in our community. While the need for salvation is paramount, there are many other needs that we can also meet in the name of Jesus. We are committed to identifying and meeting these needs where ever we can using the gifts and abilities God has given us.
We are committed to helping people understand and apply the truths of the Bible so that it makes a difference in their lives. In our teaching and preaching we strive to present God’s Word in clear and relevant ways so that people can actually apply what they’ve learned to their lives.
We are committed to creating public services & programs that people love to attend. Our public services and programs are deliberately and purposefully designed to remove any obstacles that might get in the way of people hearing and understanding the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We want people to feel at home among us no matter where they are in their spiritual journey. We want people to be glad they spent time with us – so much so that they invite their friends the next time.
We are committed to allowing God to work through the power of His Word, through prayer, and through the power of the Holy Spirit. It is our responsibility to teach the whole counsel of Scripture through a variety of means such as our public services or programs, small group studies, or personal mentoring. It is also our responsibility to pray for each other, for the lost, for our church, and for our community. It is the Holy Spirit’s role to reveal God’s truth, to convict of sin, to change hearts, and to lead according to His will.
