What We Believe


God has always loved you, and He demonstrated that love by asking His only Son, Jesus Christ, to take the punishment for our sins and pay it all.

We are called to show everyone this Love by loving them in the same way that God has loved us.


God desires to have a relationship with you, and He knows it's hard to know someone you don't know. He has shown Himself through history and through His Son, Jesus Christ. He has inspired the writers of the Bible, His Word, to show His character, actions, and plans for the world. We are called to grow closer to God by learning, teaching, and sharing His Word and by applying it to our lives.


God is serving people and wants you to join Him. He knows that you will have fun, you will grow, and you will look more like Jesus by serving others. But, in which way are we suppose to serve? He sent Jesus to show us the way. Actually, Jesus Himself said: "I am The Way." (John 14:6)
