We Believe in Purpose

January 28, 2024 • Andrew Lough • Ephesians 2:4–10

In Christ, we become united with God. We receive salvation as an act of God’s grace as we come to Christ in faith, encounter him in baptism, and receive the Holy Spirit into our lives. This empowers our journey of following Jesus and his way of life. Our hope is in Him and His return when we, like him, will be victorious over death and live forever with God.   As we follow Jesus, we become his disciples – becoming more and more like him. We set out on a path to align our wills to God’s and become who God has made us to be.

We Believe in the Gospel

January 21, 2024 • Brian Hajicek • 1 Corinthians 15:1–8

Creation lies in a fallen state of separation from God because of sin and our will. While we are helpless to fix what is broken, God the Son became human in Jesus Christ, born to the virgin Mary to fulfill prophesy. Jesus lived without sin yet was wrongly accused and executed on a Roman cross. Three days later he rose victorious over death. After being seen by witnesses he returned to the right hand of God the Father and we await in hope for his return.   The Good News of Jesus is the message of salvation. We are saved by no other name and by no other means than the grace of Jesus Christ and we are free to follow him in all they ways he walked and taught.

We Believe in Revelation

January 14, 2024 • Andrew Lough • Acts 17:24–28

God is evident through the working of the Holy Spirit within his creation. We believe the Bible is His inspired word and the divine revelation of his character and plan. We believe the Holy Spirit works within creation and the lives of believers.   As God reveals himself to us, we become inspired to seek him out. As his power and goodness become evident, we respond by drawing closer to him. He is truly not far from any one of us.

We Believe in God

January 7, 2024 • Andrew Lough • 1 John 1:1–7

We believe in one eternal, all-powerful God who creates all things. This one God exists in three perfectly unified expressions – God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit – and rules over His creation.   A God that exists in perfect community, and desires to dwell with his creation points us to a powerful truth that we are created to be in union with him and in a vibrant faith community.
