Four Distinctives

God has called Church of the Open Door to draw people to His Son. That’s our mission, our distinct assignment as a local church. We're excited!

Articles of Faith

Our Articles of Faith present the doctrines we are committed to as a church. These historic truths are always under attack, so we need to regularly restate our convictions in precise terms. This keeps us within our historic parameters as a conservative, evangelical church.
