We're happy you're reading this
We don't think it's a coincidence that you're here. As a church, our mission is to lead people into an active, growing faith and life in Jesus Christ. We want to help everyone come to know how much God really loves them, and how He proved it through His Son, Jesus.
God has some wonderful purposes for your life.
You were planned to play a part in God's story! You exist for God’s benefit, his glory, his purpose, and his delight. Bringing enjoyment to God, living for his pleasure, is the first purpose of your life. He's been writing His story since the beginning, and you're invited to be a part of it! How cool, right?
God created you on purpose to live for a bigger purpose!
But we walked away from God...So now, there's a problem.
God has these incredible purposes for us, but we have sinned against Him, making it impossible to fulfill the eternal purposes God has in mind for us. We have broken His rules and disobeyed His commandments, and none of us can escape the responsibility of this.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23 ESV)
And because of our sin, we are spiritually dead and separated from God, unable to experience His purposes as we are. In fact, if we remain as we are, as unforgiven sinners, we will spend eternity away from God in hell.
“For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23 ESV)
But God has the perfect solution!
We have sinned, we’ve lost our way, and we’re sentenced to death as a result, but God is love and God loves us too deeply to leave us lost. Instead, He has taken the initiative to send His one and only Son, Jesus, to earth, to be our Savior, our Rescuer, our Redeemer.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16 ESV)
“But God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8 ESV)
So, what did Jesus accomplish when He died on the cross? He paid the debt of our sins. And because He has paid for sin, He offers us forgiveness, a fresh start, a clean slate. He offers us new life in Himself!
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, even when we were dead in our trespasses, made us alive together with Christ – by grace you have been saved…” (Ephesians 2:4-5 ESV)
