Family, Faith, Focus

Our Family


The Moore's have been married over 28 years.  God has blessed them with seven children, three daughter-in-laws, and five grand children.  Their oldest son, Caleb, serves as music director in East Bend, NC, with his family, Rebekah, Callie, and Carson.  Their second son, Isaac, and his wife, Brittany, serve in the Sunday School, youth, and music ministry of their home church.  Their third son, Luke, and his wife, Megan, currently serve in a Spanish-speaking work, in Stanleyville, NC, and are preparing to go to South America as missionaries.  Their fourth son, Ethan, is currently on deputation, and will be working as a church planter in northeastern Utah.  The three youngest, Abigail, Gideon, and Lydia, will be traveling to Utah to help in the church planting ministry there.  Philip and Angela have served, since they were married, in the local church - leading youth groups and teaching Sunday School, serving on staff as a youth pastor for three years, and eighteen years as pastor of Cherry Grove Baptist Church, in Moravian Falls, NC. 

Our Faith


The Bible - Inspired, according to the scriptures, and preserved, according to the scriptures, for the English-speaking world in the King James Version of the scriptures.

Salvation - by grace, through faith alone; God's gift to whosoever will repent and put their faith in the finished work of Jesus Christ

God - God the Father; eternal; omnipotent; omniscient; holy

Jesus Christ - God the Son; fully God; fully man; sinless; virgin born; eternal with the Father; Creator; Saviour; I AM; Advocate

Holy Spirit - God the Holy Ghost; Comforter; Teacher; earnest of our salvation; Reprover of the Believer

Heaven - the eternal abode of those who, by faith in Jesus Christ, are born again; no sin; no sorrow; no suffering; no death; Jesus Christ is the center piece of Heaven

Hell - the eternal abode of all those who refuse to put their faith in trust in Jesus Christ; a place of eternal torment and fire; a place of sorrow, suffering, pain, and never-ending death 

Our Focus


God has led us to the Salt Lake Valley.  Our mission is to plant Independent Baptist Churches with a heart for God  and a vision to reach the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ.  

This work will be accomplished through the pattern established by Christ, and carried out by His disciples, in the New Testament churches.

Disciple new believer's through teaching them the truth's of God's Word.
