ABOUT OUR CHURCH


Welcome to Whetstone Ministries where loving God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength and loving our neighbors as Christ has loved us Never Gets Dull…

Where walking in Holiness, Humility, and a Hunger for the things of God NEVER GETS DULL…Why?

Because We are Whetstone Ministries…Where Iron Sharpens Iron

Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, So a man sharpens the countenance of his friend.” If there is anything in your life that is a little DULL right now then we invite you to COME & SEE and experience the “sharpening effects” of the love of God that has been shed abroad in our hearts to share with our neighbors.

We are Whetstone…simply the tool in the hand of the Master in which He has chosen to use to help “sharpen” the lives of those whom He sends to us.

Today…that you could be you! We look forward to seeing you…until then we pray that the Love and Favor of God rest upon you and yours in Jesus name…Amen

OUR MISSION

Our mission here at Whetstone Ministries is to “Make Disciples”. As God adds to the Body of Christ – His Church…such as should be saved…we are to provide a place conducive to genuine fellowship, growth, and development of the believers whereby they may become sharp in their faith and use of God’s Word; then we are to assist them in remaining sharp through meditation, study, and application of God’s Word; and finally, as we all mature through love, fellowship, and obedience to God’s Word; our desire is to truly be known as the church “Where Iron Sharpens Iron”


OUR VISION

Here at Whetstone Ministries, we have been chosen by God to follow His Son, Christ Jesus and in so doing He will in turn make us “fishers of men”. Therefore, as a church we believe our first objectives is to reach the lost, the hurting, the depressed, the frustrated, and the confused. We have been called to lead them to receive the gift of salvation through the finished work of the cross and then to accept the risen Christ as Lord of their lives. And because we believe in “Catch and Release”… We are then to provide them with a place where they can find love, acceptance, encouragement, forgiveness, guidance, and hope. And then we are to assist them in discovering their God-given gift and provide a place for their gifts to be used while equipping them for the advancement of the kingdom of God.
