What we believe

Hey there! We're a group of regular folks, just like you, who find our purpose, hope, and joy in the beautiful story of God. Let's break down what we believe in simpler terms:

About God

God, simply put, is everything. He's the all-powerful, all-wise, and ever-loving Creator of everything we see and don't see. He's the source of life itself.

About Jesus Christ

Now, this is where the story gets fascinating. Jesus is God's Son, and He's not just a historical figure – He's alive and actively changing lives. He came into our world as one of us, experienced life's ups and downs, and showed us what love truly means. His sacrifice on the cross? That was to wipe our slates clean and bring us back to God. Oh, and the best part? He's coming back one day to bring us into a forever-kingdom.

About the Holy Spirit

Think of the Holy Spirit as your guide, your comforter, and your source of strength. It's like having God right by your side, helping you through life's twists and turns. The Spirit's job includes helping us understand what's right, what's wrong, and gently nudging us in the right direction.

About the Bible

The Bible isn't just an old book. It's God's way of speaking to us even today. When you open its pages, you're getting a front-row seat to God's love story with humanity. It's filled with wisdom, stories of hope, and the ultimate message of grace through Jesus.

About Human Beings

We're all unique creations, made in the image of God. But, let's face it, we're not perfect. We've got this thing called "sin" – basically, it's our tendency to mess up. But don't worry; God's got a plan to rescue and restore us.

About Justification and Assurance

Feeling a bit lost or broken? We all do at times. That's where Jesus steps in. His sacrifice on the cross is like a giant eraser for our mistakes. When we believe in Him, we're made right with God, and the Holy Spirit inside us assures us that we're God's beloved children.

About Eternal Security

Once you're in God's family, you're in for good. It's not about trying to be perfect or earning your way into His good graces. God's love and power keep you secure, no matter what.

So, there you have it – our beliefs in a nutshell. We're here to walk this incredible journey of faith with you, and we can't wait to meet you in person. Join us anytime, and let's discover more of this beautiful story together!
