Who We Are
We are a church located in Bloomington, Indiana.
Our doctrine stems from a full commitment to the authority of the Holy Bible as God's inerrant and infallible Word. This means that we believe in the Triune God: Father, Son & Holy Spirit. We acknowledge our total inability to save ourselves and, in faith, depend on the Lord Jesus Christ alone as our Savior. We acknowledge Him as Covenant Lord in every area of life, and we vow together to advance His kingdom on the earth.
