Our Values

Speaking Truth

Sharing Jesus’ good news without shame. Trusting the Holy Spirit to change minds and hearts.
Every other month we meet in a local library to share about the gospel and invite anyone to ask questions about Christianity and the biblical worldview. We also publish videos to winsomely and creatively discuss how a biblical worldview enables us to understand the culture.

Fostering Community

Loving each other. Cultivating a family community. Living out the gospel in real life. Serving God together.
We meet in the homes of different church families twice each month to study the Bible, share a meal and fellowship with each other. You are welcome to join us!

Building Trust

Forming loving, deliberate and honest relationships with people not yet in Christ’s family.
We are committed to “doing ordinary life together with gospel intentionality.” That means we build relationships with our unsaved neighbors and coworkers into the rhythms of our lives. We are developing a relationship with our local school district (North Thurston Public Schools) and a local foster organization to show Christ’s love to families and students in our community.

What kind of church is SKRBC?

We are a community of Jesus followers dedicated to living out the gospel. We are committed to the fundamentals of the Christian faith. We preach and teach out of several different Bible translations and don’t have a dress code. We sing gospel centered music, both ancient and modern.


What to expect

Expository, systematic preaching and teaching of God’s Word. The Bible isn’t a cookbook; it’s a collection of individual letters which were designed to be read and understood in a systematic fashion. You can’t take one verse from Psalms, a passage from Leviticus, a dash of Romans, and a pinch of Ephesians, stir well, and bake in the oven for 30 mins @ 350. Books need to be read, taught, preached and understood in a serious way.

A zeal for evangelism. Christians need to preach the Gospel. We do this together as a corporate group through specific outreach events and programs. We also do this in our personal lives, were we live, where we work, and among our family members.

Focus on inward devotion, not cold, outward show. Some people think being a Christian is about “acting right.” That’s incorrect. Being a Christian is about loving God with all your heart, soul and might (Deuteronomy 6:5), because He’s saved you from yourself and given you new life. And, if you love God and are truly grateful, you’ll want to do what His Word says.

Your outward actions should always flow from an inward love and devotion to God for His “inexpressible gift” of salvation, through His eternal Son, Jesus (2 Corinthians 9:5). This means Christians can’t excuse sin by an appeal to “liberty,” and we also can’t excuse external, fake conformity with an appeal to “right behavior’ at the expense of honest motivation. We serve God because we love Him.
