About Us


Why We Exist (Our Mission)

God gives lonely people a family; He sets captives free and they go out singing!   Psalm 68:6 (NIRV) 

What We Want to Accomplish (Our Vision)

To reproduce disciples of Jesus, by teaching Biblical truth and emphasizing the work of the Holy Spirit in daily life.


What Motivates Us (Our Core Values)

Original Design We receive the Spirit of God in order to be participants not spectators. As the Body of Christ we are all equipped and assigned to do His work.
Team Ministry We do His work in a collaborative team environment that inspires people to action based on shared goals and cooperation. Every member is encouraged to connect with a team and serve while focusing on what they do best, using their gifts and strengths.
On Mission We advance God’s kingdom by taking Jesus and His message into our community, county, and world. Through local and world missions, community involvement, life groups, and church planting endeavors; we give priority to outreach.
Life Groups are a small number of people joined to share common experience together. These groups are our primary environment for fellowship, developing deep relationships, intentional discipleship, and receiving and giving care. “We are not a church with life groups; we are a church of life groups. It’s how we do church.”
Gathering Together We meet weekly to be unified, empowered, challenged and encouraged. Our Sunday morning service is about corporate worship, connecting people, vision casting, studying Scripture, ministering to children on their level, and celebration. This gathering provides the stage for God to speak vision into our collective mission.
Disciple Making Listening to a sermon in the corporate worship service is not enough to facilitate true growth. Discipleship also needs to happen on the personal level, one-on-one with fellow believers, in small groups, and in purposeful Christian education settings. Each of these levels offers a different dynamic to the growth process. Jesus also commissioned us to make disciples; those who learn from Christ and find their lives transformed.
Our Leadership

The Church at Whistling Pines is governed by a team of Elders. Our Church government is Elder driven, outside counsel protected, and membership strengthened. The Elders set the vision and mission for the church and provide oversight and guidance to ministry leaders.  The elders in this body are equal in function, but differ in the expression of their gifts and in the time they may give to watching over and feeding the flock. The functioning eldership in team ministry is an extension of a functioning priesthood of believers (members). The Lead Pastor/elder leads the Board of Elders in overseeing the day-to-day ministry of the church.

 Our God is a God of abundance and He loves to give. He sacrificed willingly on the cross and then invited us into fullness of life. As His children, we are called to imitate Him. Our generosity in giving is a demonstration of God’s character and a response to what He has done for us.
