WHAT WE BELIEVE

Teaching the Word - Because we believe that God's Word is completely true and is the primary way God chooses to reveal Himself and His character to us, teaching the Bible is a vitally important part of the ministry of Sager Creek Community Church. One of the ways we emphasize the importance of God's Word is by preaching and teaching book-by-book, chapter-by-chapter, and verse-by-verse. We believe that this kind of teaching allows for the most comprehensive learning of the Word so that its principles can be applied to our daily lives. It is our desire that the consistent teaching of God's Word at Sager Creek will result in changed lives as believers' minds are renewed daily by the Word.
