What makes Landmark different from other churches I’ve attended?

Belonging to a local church is about becoming a new family united in Jesus and not necessarily about having several things in common. We're not all the same, we're from all walks of life, and we're called to different purposes. Landmark encourages our family members to be faithful in every area of life because the strength of our witness depends on our consistency (Deuteronomy 6:7; Ephesians 6:1-4).
So, our strategy is to become great at helping people know Jesus intimately and then support them as they test out their new life in the real world. We are not a church with a bunch of programs that wear people out and keep them from living life. We believe it's best to spend our time modeling and sharing the gospel in normal, everyday settings like over a meal, going to the store, being a good worker, student or community members; and in general being hospitable to everyone we meet, especially believers (Romans 12; Galatians 6:10).

What should I wear?

Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable. Many people wear casual clothes but if you would like to wear a suit and tie, that’s ok, too.

Where is the main entrance?

Simply look for the welcome flag(s).

What can I expect when I walk in the door?

You can expect to be greeted warmly and walked to your seat. 

Will I be expected to donate money if I attend a service?

Since our members have committed to supplying our church needs, our guests are free to give or not give as the Lord leads them.

What Bible version do you use?

We mainly use the English Standard Version, although we occasionally reference other versions. You are encouraged to bring a Bible, a Bible app, or use a Bible we provide.

What musical worship “style” should I expect?

In our weekly services, you’ll experience a variety of songs and instruments. All of our songs are carefully chosen; we want the best of the best. Songs from church history: the most biblically accurate hymns of our faith. Songs from today: the most theologically sound and musically interesting offerings… not chosen because they’re the most popular, but because they teach solid scriptural truth. Our musical worship attempts to be Christ-Centered and not entertainment driven with the goal of glorifying God while edifying and educating the believer and testifying to those who don’t know Him.

What happens during a typical worship service?

Most services open with two or three songs that reflect God’s glory, our sinfulness and His redemption.  This is followed by the sermon and communion and includes two or three more songs to reflect our Savior’s sacrifice and our mission. We end our time together with some encouraging thoughts as we’re dismissed to serve the Lord in the coming week.

Will I be put on the spot during any of the services?

Absolutely not! We will not embarrass you by asking you to stand and address the congregation. Our ushers are likely to direct you towards our pastors, so you can meet them.

I have young children…. What about them?

We believe it’s important for families to worship together, but we understand this can be challenging at times. If you ask our ushers, they can tell you about our family suites and other helpful resources. Our congregation has grown accustomed to the presence of children in the service. We want them to feel free to participate and know they belong.
