Timothy Hopkins

Senior Pastor

My faith journey started very young. At age ten, my father took a position as a music pastor and led our family into a walk and relationship with God. I asked Jesus into my heart during a movie about “HELL” and began my journey with Christ.

In 1984, I met my wife, Tracy, that led me on a journey through numerous service opportunities in both music/worship programs and youth programs. I have been blessed to work with some exceptional pastors as well as very talented musicians.

Worship has seen every musical influence from classic piano/organ high church to contemporary praise and worship as well as the bluegrass gospel that I enjoy personally. My goal is to always be a transparent lens that helps others focus on coming before the throne of the Almighty God.

Our Vision

What We Believe

We agree with the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 but go beyond that to confirm the Sola’s of the Reformation. Sola means “alone.”

Sola Scriptura The scriptures are solely written and divinely revealed by God and they
alone bind the conscience of believers.

Sola Fide is justification by faith alone. We are saved by the merit of Christ, imputed to
us by faith. Our sins have been remitted from us and imputed to Christ.

Sola Christus Jesus Christ is the mediator between God and man and His work alone
redeems us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us.

Sola Gratia Our salvation rests on God’s grace alone poured out on sinners through the
work of the Holy Spirit bringing people to faith in Christ.

Soli Deo Gloria the work of salvation comes from the heart of God to save sinners.
Therefore, to God alone belongs the glory.
