Plum Creek Christian Church

What does “Authentic” mean to you? The dictionary describes it as being genuine and original. It also means being true and trustworthy. Bottom line, anyway you look at it, it comes across in a positive light. Who wouldn’t want to be authentic? A church doesn’t become this way on its own but rather by the authentic shepherds who are the elders of the church.

The shepherd LEADS the flock out of harm’s way and always seeks the Holy Spirit’s guidance.

He FEEDS them and makes sure they get the spiritual food they need to sustain their lives in Him.

He also PROTECTS them from the one who seeks to devour them which is satan himself. Satan seeks to divide the church and to do everything he can to destroy God’s kingdom.

Lastly, a shepherd LOVES his sheep enough to leave 99 in the open country to find the one who is missing. The shepherd’s responsibility for his flock will drive him to do anything necessary to make sure the flock is LEAD, FED, PROTECTED and LOVED.

We welcome everyone to Plum Creek Christian Church where we as a flock worship the ultimate “AUTHENTIC” Shepherd, Jesus Christ.
