Who We Are

Since June 1970, our most distinctive feature can be seen in our attitude toward restoring New Testament Christianity in our day. We take this effort very seriously. Genuine Christianity is the religion of Bible authority, so you will find us doing our level best to comply with what the Scriptures teach.

What you will find when you visit us are people who are striving to please God. You will find us reading from His Word, the Bible, and expounding on it.
