"What I think is scary about God is that He didn't come up with any 'Plan B.' He left the Church here and the Church is the only group of people and the only institution in the world that can bring about a change." -Rich Mullins (1955-1997)

In August of 2004, our Youth Pastor, Eric Whelchel, outlined the meaning of a new student ministry identity we call "NoPlanB."

"As our church and our student ministry strives to reach people who live in a relative world, so grows the need for us to build upon a foundation of truth that God has established as non-negotiable."

There is "NoPlanB" for SALVATION...

A relationship with God is through Jesus Christ, and Him only.

(John 14:6, Acts 4:12)

There is "NoPlanB" for REVELATION...

The Bible is the final word in knowing the person and plan of God. (2 Timothy 3:16-17)

There is "NoPlanB" for COMMUNITY...

Because Christ gave Himself for the Church, to live in Christ is to live in community with other believers. We can't be "lone ranger" Christians. (Hebrews 10:23-25, 1 Corinthians 12:12-27, Acts 4:32-35)

There is "NoPlanB" for COMMISSION...

The responsibility to make a difference has been left to us, no one else. So, we must take it seriously. (Acts 1:7-8)
