We are Bereans ! In Acts 17, the Bereans are described as those who "received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true" (verse 11). Like those Bereans of old, we are church family who value God's Word ...; the very words of God to His people. We place a high priority on the study of the Word, the preaching of the Word, and hiding God's Word in our hearts.
We are Believers ! Paul emphasizes in Ephesians that "it is by grace you have been saved through faith - and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-not by works, so that no one can boast." James, however, reminds us saving faith is visible, tangible, and lives itself out in our day-to-day lives. we are a family that loves what we believe as we interact with one another, and the world around us.
