Our Mission

"To Know Christ, and To Make Him Known."
Our church believes that advancing God's kingdom does not come through new ways of doing church, but through the ancient way:  faithfully preaching and contextualizing the unchanging gospel within a changing culture.  We believe that faith in Jesus Christ, God's only Son, is the only way to receive eternal life.


We strive to be a place of hope and love as we share the light of Jesus.  If there was one word which we desire to describe us it would be "family."  We love each other, want the best for each other, and know that this is only found in Christ.  Whether you have relatives nearby or far away, you will find yourself a family at Haverhill.


We know that outreach is best accomplished when Christians share with those with whom they have a relationship.  Believing that people should be bonded to Jesus and his church, we encourage involvement in service, worship, education, and stewardship.  The best way to introduce others to Jesus is to be faithful reflections of Jesus in the world.


Our church was established in 1875 to meet the needs of multiple communities in rural Kansas.  We continue that tradition of ministering to the people of Augusta, Douglass, El Dorado, and Leon.  We are an independent congregation led by Elders who lead the body to maturity and family, with a call for unconditional love shown to one another.

Here are our core beliefs which shape who we are and what we do as a church family.
