Mission

God has called us to share his love and mercy with everyone.  Regardless of our imperfections, God has decided to love us and has shared his grace with each of us.  Our mission is to experience the love and mercy of God and to share that with the world.  It is now our vision to see a world reached with that kind of love and mercy.  We hope that you will join us...because everyone needs mercy!

LEADERSHip

Mercy Church looks to God and the Bible as our guiding authority. We also have a structured leadership to ensure the church runs smoothly day-to-day.

Mercy Church, being relatively new, does not yet have an eldership.  However, the church is led by a dedicated team of men. This "Leadership Team" oversees both the administrative and spiritual aspects of our church.

Our Senior Pastor Tom LaHue, in collaboration with the Leadership Team, directs the daily operations of the church.  Ultimately, our goal at Mercy is for all our efforts to reflect God's presence and draw our community closer to Him.

GOD

God is the only sovereign, wise, and good Creator of all things, who reigns as King over all creation for His own glory.
ROMANS 11:33-36

MAN

Human beings were made in God’s image to love and worship Him forever. But ever since Adam first rebelled against God, we have all been lost in sin, under God’s judgment, and unable to save ourselves.
ROMANS 3:23

CHRIST

Out of undeserved love and grace, God sent His only Son to save us from sin and reconcile us to Himself through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
JOHN 3:16

our response

God offers us His gift of salvation by grace, which we receive through faith in Jesus. He makes us new, calls us to leave sin behind, and invites us to join His work in the world.
EPHESIANS 2:8-10

We believe in one God—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
  • We believe in God the Father Almighty, Creator of all things visible and invisible.

  • We believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the eternal Word, the one and only Savior.

    • Who was conceived by the Holy Spirit and born of the virgin Mary, both fully human and fully divine; Who lived a sinless life; Who suffered and was crucified as an atonement for sin; Who rose again bodily from the dead on the third day; Who ascended into Heaven; and Who will return in victory to rule forever.

  • We believe in the Holy Spirit.

    • Who convicts of sin; Who indwells every Christian; Who helps us in our weakness and intercedes for us in prayer; and Who empowers us to a fruitful Christian life.

We believe in the Bible—God's Word.
  • We believe God inspired the original writings of the Scripture and those original writings were consequently without error.

  • We believe that the Bible is the final authority for all matters of faith, truth, morality, and Christian living.

  • We believe the Bible teaches that God is the Creator and Sustainer of human life; that God creates each person in His image; and that life is therefore sacred, from conception to natural death. We believe that God creates each person as male or female; that these two distinct, complementary genders together reflect the "image of God" in humankind; and that each person's biological gender is an intrinsic, immutable aspect of his or her nature and identity.

  • We believe the Bible teaches that God established marriage in the beginning as a lifelong, exclusive relationship between one man and one woman; that He has reserved sexual intimacy as an expression of love and commitment between married couples; and that any intimate expression of sexuality outside of Biblical marriage is sin.

We believe in the Gospel—the Good News of Salvation.
  • That man, created by God, willfully sinned against God and is consequently lost and without hope apart from Jesus Christ.

  • That salvation—the forgiveness of sins—is only by grace through the blood of Jesus Christ.

  • That one receives salvation by putting faith in Christ, repenting of sin, and confessing Christ, and that the Bible commands every believer in Christ to be baptized by immersion.

  • That those who have received salvation through faith in Jesus Christ are sent into the world to proclaim the Gospel and to love and serve the world just as Jesus Himself did.

We believe in the Church—God's redeemed people.
  • We believe in the Church of Jesus Christ, founded on the Day of Pentecost, consisting of all Christians everywhere, and organized into local assemblies, called churches.

  • We believe the Bible teaches that every Christian should be an active member of a local church.

  • We believe that the Elders of the church are the overseers of its affairs and the shepherds of its members; that they are the final interpretive authority of the Bible's meaning and application for the church; and that they are responsible for the oversight, instruction, edification, discipline, and restoration of church members.

  • We believe that the Bible instructs church members to:

    • Meet together regularly for fellowship, worship, teaching, and the Lord's Supper.

    • Use our natural abilities and spiritual gifts to serve one another.

    • Love one another, bear with one another, accept one another, and forgive one another.

    • Seek unity, agreement, and peace with one another.

    • Encourage and build up one another.

    • Bear one another's burdens and pray for one another.

    • Spur one another to love and good deeds.

    • Submit to the authority of the elders of the church.

    • Support the church financially.

    • Pursue personal holiness and obedience to God's Word.

    • Strive together to fulfill the Great Commission.
