What We Believe
We believe in the triune God who has revealed Himself to mankind through the inspired Scriptures; 
 
We have experienced the spiritual birth through faith in Christ and acclaim Him as our Lord and Savior; 
 
We cherish the Scriptures as sole and authoritative guide for our faith and conduct, the Holy Spirit being our interpreter and advocate; 
 
We enjoy personal access to God through our Lord Jesus Christ and devote ourselves to the ministry of the priesthood of the believer; 
 
We affirm the Church to be a fellowship of believers who have experienced spiritual birth and have been baptized in accordance with New Testament teaching, celebrating the Lord’s Supper as a memorial until He comes again; 
 
We minister to the Church by the gifts of God’s grace and direct her action prayerfully and democratically; 
 
We hold ourselves responsible and accountable to God as well as to man, carrying out the Great Commission of Jesus Christ and respond in Christian love to the needs of man and society; 
 
We foster the fellowship of like-minded churches and participate in the larger tasks of Christ’s mission to reach those who are without the knowledge of the Gospel; 
 
We avow the liberty of each Christian believer and safeguard the separation of church and state; 
 
We believe that God has not left Himself unattested and, therefore, seek religious freedom for all persons everywhere.

Get Involved

We have a number of volunteering opportunities for you to share your gifts, talents, and abilities and to grow in your faith.
Grow:
Join us on Sunday mornings for Worship and Sunday School. During the week we have Bible studies, Awana Clubs, and more. Watch the calendar for other events, such as Vacation Bible School, seminars, and other special events.
Preparing and serving food:
In addition to potluck meals at our church, we also serve at the St. Francis House, and deliver food to those who are ill, bereaved, or in need. We also need volunteers to provide treats for Fellowship Time between the Worship Service and Sunday School.
Building/repairing:
In the past, we have had mission trips in the summer to assist a church in Eagle Butte with maintaining and updating their church building. There are also smaller projects in our own building and grounds, including painting, mowing, spring cleaning, gardening/landscaping, etc.
Children's Programs:
Adult and teen volunteers can help in various ways with our children's programs: Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Awana Clubs (help with food, special events, games, etc.), and other special events. Children would, of course, participate in those activities.
Music/Worship Service Involvement:
Every Sunday there is time reserved in the worship service (called Ministry of Music) for someone to share a song, instrumental piece, testimony, poem, etc.; children are invited to be part of the Kids Choir; those interested in acting are welcome to join our Drama Team; and volunteers are invited to sign up to read the chosen Scripture during the Worship Service. We sing hymns and have a small praise team. We also have a Bluegrass group that performs on the fifth Sunday of the month.
Prayer:
If you enjoy praying for the needs and praises in the church, please ask to be part of our Prayer Chain so that you can pray for specific things within our congregation. Every first and third Sunday evening we have a brief service that focuses on praying for our church, community, country, and the world.
Other:
The Outreach Team typically promotes a variety of other volunteering opportunites, including making bandages for the White Cross, the monthly KNWC "Hands and Feet" ministry opportunites, and more. Watch the calendar, bulletin, and newsletter for other upcoming volunteer opportunities.
If you have a ministry opportunity or idea you would like to share with us, please contact us.
