Our hope is that you come to believe with us, in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. The simple message that we proclaim as Christians is that though God created people in His image to be righteous, holy, and wise, the Bible teaches that “…all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” and the “…wages of sin is death.” (Romans 3:23 and 6:23). Because of our sin, there is not one of us who is able to please God or to stand before Him. Yet, though we deserve punishment for our sin, in this the love of God was made known, “…that He sent his only begotten Son into the world, that whosoever believes on him should not perish, but have eternal life.” (1 John 4:9)
As a church, we proclaim the good news, that Jesus Christ endured the death that sinners deserve to open up the Way of salvation. Those that receive this truth and trust the Son of God, Jesus the Savior, by a true and living faith are saved by Him from the judgement of God and from destruction, and have the gift of true life given to them.
We believe that this true life is already experienced by Christians, but that we have not yet seen its full expression. We already experience God’s forgiveness, grow in knowledge of Him, and in friendship with Him. We already seek to be a church of love, support, and service of one another and our community. We seek to work and build relationships to the glory of God. We gather in worship, singing and praying together so that we will be strengthened out of God’s Word. In dependence on the Holy Spirit, we desire lives that overflow with thankfulness for the work of the Lord Jesus Christ.
But knowing our weaknesses, brokenness, continuing sinfulness, and failures, we also hope for that life which is not yet. The true life of perfect and eternal communion with God that he promises to believers after their death. We hope for that time when Christ will return, when He will wipe away all of our tears, and live with us eternally in the new heavens and new earth.
Please do come to join us, but most importantly, come into the presence of God and worship Him! (Psalm 100:4)
