We strive to give ultimate authority to the Bible, in its entirety, and submit to what it says regardless of our personal opinion or bent.
We strive to support domestic & international world missionaries financially, reach out to our neighbors in tangible ways and serve the world through short term mission trips.
We strive to make such a positive impact in our community that if we were to close our doors people would notice and feel our absence.
We strive to create an environment where we are more in love with Jesus than our personal preferences.
All human beings are created to be with God, and are intended to worship Him with their lives. Inevitably, though, everyone has missed this goal, and because of that, we hurt and destroy our own lives and the lives of others around us. The ultimate result of our failures is death and separation from God.
God provided a solution to our problem by sending His son, Jesus, to sacrifice his life to bring us back into God’s family. God is so committed to the humans He made that He reaches out to us, because He knows we can’t undo the effects of our failings on our own.
God asks only that we believe that He is real and good, proclaim that Jesus is His son who suffered and died in our place, and ask that He would forgive us for running away from Him. He knows we can’t be perfect, so He doesn’t ask us to fix our behavior before He’ll love us, only that we are living and walking with Him.
He doesn’t wait for us to be perfect. He comes running to meet us when He sees us turn towards Him.
It’s never too late to come home.
