The first person you meet will be one of the friendly, greeters who will open the door and welcome your family. Church services aren't about us - everything we do is about JESUS.
We sing songs and modern praise choruses from the hymnal as we worship God. Stories of God answering prayers and requests for prayer happen every service. Our sermons are straight from the Bible and show how God wants all of us to be like Him. All of our time and focus is on Jesus.
We gather at 4212 Marshall Rd. in Kettering, Ohio. Directions

God is a Person, eternally existing, as a Trinity in unity--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--three Persons and yet one God. (Deuteronomy 6:4, Matthew 28:19, 1 Corinthians 8:6)
Jesus Christ, eternally existing, is the only begotten Son of God, who became a sinless man to redeem us. He was born of a virgin and is true God and true man. (Luke 1:30-55, John 1:1-15, Philippians 2:5-8)
The local church is a group of believers baptized by water, banded together for edification, exhortation, and evangelism as commanded by Christ in the Great Commission; preaching the Gospel to every creature. (Mark 16:15, 1 Corinthians 12:12, Ephesians 1:22-23)
We believe that the Holy Bible was supernaturally inspired & preserved verbally without any admixture of error for its matter. We believe the Bible to be the true center of Christian union & the Supreme standard by which all human conduct, creeds, & opinions shall be tried. 2 Timothy 3:16-17, 2 Peter 1:19-21
Man was created in the image of God but fell through sin, bringing not only physical death, but also spiritual death or eternal separation from God. Now all of mankind exists as a fallen race with an inherited sinful nature. (Genesis 2:16, Genesis 3:16-19, Romans 3:10-23, Romans 6:23)
Sacrifice of Christ
The Lord Jesus Christ suffered and died as a substitutionary payment for the sins of the whole world. He physically arose from the dead and then ascended into Heaven. Simple faith in this sacrifice is the only way of salvation for mankind. (Luke 24, Acts 1:9-11, Romans 5:8-10, 1 Peter 3:18)
God, in His own time and in His own way, will bring the world to its appropriate end. According to His promise, Jesus Christ will return personally and visibly in glory to the earth; the dead will be raised; and Christ will judge all men in righteousness. The unrighteous will be consigned to Hell, the place of everlasting punishment. The righteous in their resurrected and glorified bodies will receive their reward and will dwell forever in Heaven with the Lord. (Revelation 1:18; 3:11; 20:1-22:13)
Lord's Supper and Baptism
Scriptural baptism is the immersion of repentant believers in water, administered by the authority of a New Testament church in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Lord's Supper is a memorial ordinance, restricted to the members of the church observing the ordinance. (Matt. 28:19, 20; Acts 8:12, 38; Rom. 6:4; 1 Cor. 5:11-13; 1 Cor. 11:1, 2, 17-20, 26)
He is God, and He loves you.
Jesus said He was God. He proved it by His life, His words, His deeds, and His love. “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;)” (Ephesians 2:4–5). “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
He died and rose again to pay for your sins.
Our sin separates us from God and requires the payment of death (Romans 3:32, 6:23). Yet, because Jesus died for you, you don’t have to pay for your own sins! “Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day…” (1 Corinthians 15:3–4). “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
He desires to come into your life and save you.
Here’s how Jesus said it: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life…” (John 3:36). “He that believeth on me hath everlasting life” (John 6:47). “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25).
Going to Heaven isn’t about be good or religious.
It’s about trusting Christ alone. Call out to Him, ask Him to come into your life, save you from sin, and give you His gift of eternal life. It’s the best decision you will ever make. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Romans 10:13).
