Why do we wear casual attire to worship service?

We dress casually because it is not about what you wear, but what you want. God is concerned with your heart. – Mark 7:6-8 (NIV)

Why is the NIV and Message Bible our translation of preference?

We use these translations because they are the most accurate English translations from the original Greek and Hebrew Bible.

Why are we non-denominational?

Denominations are man-made and are not located within the Bible. They are functions of tradition and not truths. No authority, other than God, guides the means, faith or order of our church. We are committed to God’s Holy Word. – Mark 7:6-8 (NIV)

Why do we give God offerings?

“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly; and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” – II Corinthians 9:6-8

Why do we bring God the tithe?

“Bring all the tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour you out such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” heaven and pour you out such blessings that there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” says the Lord of hosts. “And all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land.” says the Lord of hosts. -Malachi 3:10-12
