We believe that the grace of God can change all of us and we seek to share God’s
saving message of hope to all.
“God loved the people of this world so much that he gave his only Son, so that
everyone who has faith in him will have eternal life and never really die. (John 3:16)
No matter what any of us have done, no matter our past, God loves us so much that He gave His only Son to die in our place, to provide access to God’s grace, to provide forgiveness and renewal, and to give us the hope of eternal life at home with God.
The world is spinning in the chaos of evil, injustice and death. This results from the presence of sin in the world and in our lives. On our own we can never fix this brokenness in ourselves and in the world. But there is good news!
Jesus paid the price for all of the sin in the world through His sacrificial death on the cross and then God raised Him from the dead. The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus is the center of God’s story of redemption.
God calls us to change our lives from wrong to right, to stop living for ourselves and to start living for God. That involves a choice to love God and love our neighbors each and every day. God calls us to die to ourselves and die to our sins by being immersed in water and to be raised to walk in
newness of life.
“ Don’t you know that all who share in Christ Jesus by being baptized also share in his death?
When we were baptized, we died and were buried with Christ. We were baptized, so that we would live a new life, as Christ was raised to life by the glory of God the Father. ” (Romans 6:3-4)
We look to Jesus’ teaching and life faithfully preserved in the New Testament, as the way to live our lives. We seek to be followers of Jesus and to conform our lives to God’s will, and have no other creed than Jesus the Christ and follow no guide other than the New Testament for our faith and practice.
The only way to find true peace and joy is to leave the ways of the world and to become a
follower of Jesus. In doing so, we find the best answer to the troubles of the here and now, but also the greatest promise of the future.
