We believe that God instructs us how He wants us to worship Him for our good. Our reverence in worship should reflect the majesty, power, and holiness of God. Our joy in worship should reflect the love, patience, and kindness of God. We believe that God and His people are the primary participants in worship. We believe the rhythm of our worship should promote an active and devoted dialogue between God and His people, like a groom and his bride or a father and his children. Although we recognize and support the role of a few to lead the congregation in worship, we want to ensure that the greater, participatory objective in worship is achieved.

Sunday morning worship, Sunday school, and various small group ministries are available at IPC.
At IPC, we have various types of small groups: Grace Groups, men’s Bible study groups, women’s ministry Bible study groups, shepherd groups, and various specific purpose study groups (divorce recovery, etc.). All of these serve to develop relationships that lead to growth as a disciple.

The Church was established by Christ as an evangelistic society. A people empowered by the Holy Spirit to represent and model the ministry of Jesus Christ on earth. Accordingly, we have structured our entire outreach and mercy ministry at IPC with Jesus’ high view of the Church.
Consider the four regional components of Jesus’ charge in Acts 1:8: “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”

TRUTH God’s word is the truth. We embrace the full counsel of his word as found in the Bible. (2 Timothy 3:16; John 1:1, 14:6; Luke 4:4; Acts 20:27).
GRACE God’s remarkable gift to his children is the unmerited substitution of Jesus’ perfect life received by faith and repentance through the work and power of the Holy Spirit resulting in our complete freedom from the just wrath of God. (Mark 2:17; Romans 7:24-25; Ephesians 2:8-9; 1 Corinthians 15:1-8).
COMMUNITY Worshiping together, growing together, and helping each other live as a follower of Jesus Christ to his glory is the benefit of living in open, honest community. (Acts 2:42-47; Colossians 1:28; Matthew 5:13-16).
HUMILITY Living by the Spirit in the truth of God’s grace produces humility and empowers a believer to value other people unconditionally. (Mark 10:45; Philippian 2:1-4, Ephesians 4:1-4).
LOVE The sum of our grateful obedience to God is love. Loving God and all others is the fruit of God’s impact on us as believers. (John 13:34-35, 14:21; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13).
