The Joy of Church Family

Next Sunday, God willing, my wife and I will be joining our new church family in Wichita, KS by becoming members and having our children baptized. The church is Heartland Community Church, which is a PCA church located about an hour from where we live. For as long as we've been married, we've never belonged to a PCA church (even though we fit best with the PCA in our convictions).

These are photos from this last Sunday, where we introduced our new daughter, Penelope, to our church family. I would post photos of the baptisms next week, but I doubt if we'll have anyone to take pictures then. Needless to say, it is very exciting to belong to a church where our theological convictions are considered an asset, rather than a liability. Every other church where we have ever attended has either been Arminian or credo-baptist. Becoming members at Heartland is simply a dream come true for me, and I am excited to begin finding opportunities to exercise my gifts in places other than in cyberspace.


  1. Nifty,

    They had a FV Pastor (youth...?) there in recent years...

  2. Well, Andrew, I can't speak for the youth pastor, because I have yet to meet him, but the preaching which I have heard from both Pastor Rick Franks and Pastor George Granberry reflect a thoroughly orthodox, non-FV understanding of justification.

  3. Oh, sorry. The FV guy became the pastor of a CREC church. Sorry for the confusion Adam.

  4. Looking Forward to hearing more.
