Christ’s love, which he demonstrated by his perfect life and by his suffering and death on the cross, is the foundation for our relationship with God, the focus of our faith, and the motivation for all we do as Christians. In that same love for sinners Christ not only lived and died to set us free from sin and guilt, but he also rose again in victory on the first Easter Sunday, assuring us that his victory is our victory and that his resurrection is our resurrection. Saved by his grace alone, we look forward to his glorious return as we proclaim the good news of what his love has accomplished.
Because Jesus is the Son of God, his perfect life and sacrificial death count for all humanity. These truths are revealed in the Bible and summarized in our belief statements.
Worship is the time when we gather to praise God for his love for us and to receive his forgiveness. Find out why worship is central to us.

"That if you confess with your mouth,
'Jesus is Lord,' and believe in your heart
that God raised him from the dead,
you will be saved. For it is with your heart
that you believe and are justified, and it is with
your mouth that you confess and are saved."
