WHAT WE BELIEVE
Jesus tells us that loving God is the greatest thing you can do. It is the greatest commandment (Matthew 22:37-38). In order to do that, we need to know who God is and thankfully, He has shown us in the Bible. He has revealed Himself to us as one God in three persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. We love Him by obeying His commands and enjoying a relationship with Him through Jesus Christ.
LOVE EACH OTHER
Jesus tells us that loving each other is like loving God (Matthew 22:39). As broken and sinful as we are, each and every human being is a divine image-bearer and is to be loved through our words and our actions. Christians in particular are called to love each other well in order to be a witness for Jesus to the watching world. We often fail, and when we do, we repent, forgive, and praise God for his grace.
Jesus gives us a third command: to make disciples (Matthew 28:19). A disciple simply put, is someone who is following Jesus. We make disciples by bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to a hurting, broken, and sinful people by the power of the Holy Spirit within us. We do this through various means: worshiping together, teaching, prayer, local and global missions, personal acts of service, and many more.
DO YOU KNOW JESUS?
We believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the greatest news ever because it tells us that even though we are sinful and undeserving of God’s love, God chooses to love us. How? God the Father sent God the Son to live the perfect life that we cannot live and to die as the perfect sacrifice for our sins. You see, our sin has separated us from God and has us destined for Hell. The Gospel however, shows us that Jesus is the way to peace with God and forgiveness for our sins. In John 3:16 we read ““For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” Through his death on the cross and his resurrection from the grave, Jesus defeated Satan, sin, and death and those who turn from their sin and believe in Jesus Christ are promised peace with God and everlasting life in a new heavens and new earth; a time and place where all creation will be at peace forever (Revelation 21).
