Do we find this approach to life fulfilling? Absolutely! We’re finding out for ourselves the meaning of Christ’s words: “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). We believe, as the Bible teaches, that Jesus made eternal life and forgiveness available to us when he died on the cross for our sins: “Christ…suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God ” (1 Peter 3:18). “To all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12). By putting your trust in the risen Jesus Christ, you too can share the blessings of becoming a child of God and enjoy building relationships with his people right here in our church. We sincerely hope you’ll look further into what makes our church what it is. We welcome you to share the joy that we’ve found.
