Mission Statement

The mission of Armor Bible Church is to worship the One True God according to His Word, to build up stable Christian families, and to engage the culture with the Truth of the Gospel in the power of the Holy Spirit, all for God’s glory and the advancement of Christ’s kingdom of grace.

The Word is Central

Christ is at the center of Armor’s worship and community. “In the beginning was the word” (John 1:1ff) is a statement referring to Him. As He is revealed through the whole of Scripture, Christ is at the very foundation of our worship and fellowship.

God-Centered, Simple Worship

Armor cherishes the Lord’s Day, offering this day (that we also know as Sunday) as a day set apart for God’s purpose and delight. We desire to honor God as he has taught us through Scripture. This means that we cherish the ordinary acts of praying, singing, preaching, and reading His Word—the focus of our attention when we worship is on God.

In a world that is constantly trying to innovate, seeking to attract people merely by their preferences and interests, Armor seeks to uphold the same worship that was present in the early church of the New Testament. “And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers” (Acts 2:42).  Our worship is simple, with a lot of singing, preaching, praying, confessing, loving, cherishing, and growing in the newness of life found in Christ. Armor is keen on preserving what Christ instituted in the New Covenant, and that is the commitment to simple worship with our Savior as the pilot, captain, and head of the Church. We believe there is great power in the simple worship of God’s People.

Thorough Preaching

As Christ’s Word, the Bible is worth preaching in its entirety. Armor preaches through the Scriptures, verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book, and leaves no verse uncovered and no topic unchecked. If Christ is present in his Word, then Christians should not shy from it! This is known as Lectio Continua, or the preaching of the Word through whole books of the Bible. We are passionate about the preaching of God’s Word!

Presbyterian & Reformed

Armor is part of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church and governs itself with a body of elders. The men who make up this body of elders are charged with the spiritual care and nurture of the church. We believe this is what is modeled in the New Testament.

Armor is also reformed. This means we trace our theological roots back to the time of the Reformation when Martin Luther and John Calvin were at the front of the march of Protestantism which sought to reform the church according to the Bible. We hold to the essential tenets of the Reformed faith as expressed in the Westminster Standards and the Three Forms of Unity. We believe these to be authentic and reliable expositions of what Scripture teaches.
