What to expect when you visit us and our beliefs.
To help make your visit to ALC go as smoothly as possible, this is what our Sunday mornings are like:
The worship service begins at 10:15 and typically ends around 11:30. The atmosphere is casual, so feel free to come as you are. We emphasize community here, and you’ll see members of every age demographic. Worship is contemporary, and you’ll hear a message centered on solid, biblical teaching.
Prayer is an important part of ALC, and you’ll have opportunity to meet someone ready to pray with you about whatever needs you might have.
Our ALC Kids ministers prepare weekly Bible lessons and stories – packaged with fun games – for children through fifth grade. The children’s area is on the east side of our campus, and designated parking spots for new moms and moms-to-be are reserved closest to the ALC Kids entrance. For security purposes, all children who take part in our children's ministries must be checked in. A smiling, trained staff member will guide you through the quick check-in process.
Students in grades 6-12 are part of our main worship service. If you come on the third Sunday of a month, your middle- or high-schooler can go to the ALC Students Chapel for our TR3S service specifically designed for that age group.
Thank you visiting us online. We’d love to have you visit us in person so we can learn more about each other!
GOD: There is only one true God, and He is revealed in three persons through what is commonly known as the Trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
JESUS CHRIST: As God’s son, Jesus came to earth both fully human and fully divine. The Lord Jesus Christ is the eternal son of God.
HOLY SPIRIT: Just as in New Testament days, the empowerment of the Holy Spirit enables believers to be witnesses and effective servants.
THE BIBLE: The scriptures were written through the inspiration of God. As truth without error, the Bible declares God’s design and plan for mankind.
SIN: Sin is separation from God. Although man was created in God’s image, man willingly fell to sin, which introduced evil and death – both physical and spiritual – into the world.
SALVATION: In the free gift of salvation, God offers every person the opportunity for restored fellowship with Him through accepting Christ’s offer of forgiveness for sin.
BAPTISM: Water baptism by immersion, which occurs after a person has repented of his sins and received the gift of salvation, is a symbolic declaration that a believer has died with Christ and has been raised from that death to live a new life in Christ.
CHURCH: The church – both locally and globally – is a community of fellow believers that exists to equip the saints for works of service and to share the gospel message with every nation, tribe, people and language.
