We currently live in a society that is constantly attacking or disregarding the principles of Scripture. Many churches have chosen to be “seeker friendly”, attempting to draw outsiders by not offending anyone. Often this has led to a type of watered down gospel that ignores the deep commitment and radical transformation that God requires.


Steadfast Church is solidly committed to the Bible. All of it. That is one of the reasons why we follow expository preaching, where we go through the Bible verse by verse. We will never compromise on the principles of Scripture.


At Steadfast Church you will not hear sermons based on pop psychology or current fads. At times, God's word is demanding and challenges our beliefs and lifestyle. This may be offensive to some but our mission is to tell the truth, not just make people comfortable. It is the truth of Scripture that teaches us how to have a fulfilled, joyful life, free of the bondage of sin, and confident in the assurance of life eternal when we die. Our teaching and preaching is Biblically based and will remain that way.


“All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right.” 2 Timothy 3:16

Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain. 

1 Corinthians 15:58
