What We Believe

Grace and Peace

We believe in the Good News of Grace and Peace.

The gospel is the message of hope to the whole world because Jesus Christ came to do a sacrificial work on the Cross that would forever settle the issue of sin that stood between God and Man. This is the Good News! The sin that had separated all mankind from full fellowship with God has been paid for by Christ. This is a sheer gift available to all men!

By receiving the sacrifice for our sin that Jesus became upon the cross, we can now have peace with God! (Romans 5:1-2) God is no longer focused upon our sins or our actions for we are hidden in Christ in God (Colossians 3:3) and we can come boldly to His Throne or presence to find help for any need we encounter 
(Hebrews 4:16).

It is the action of Jesus upon the Cross upon which we rely to approach God. Our approach is through the Son only. Our sin has been dealt with and as believers our shortcomings are no longer an issue that separates us from daily fellowship with God. Paul the apostle wrote to the Galatian Christians (Galatians chapter 3) warning them and us not to begin our spiritual walk dependent upon the sacrifice of Jesus Christ and then turn again to works or depending upon the goodness of our own actions to give us an "approach" to Father God. Many believers fall into this trap. This is the "other gospel" which Paul warned about and is totally alien to what Paul preached (Galatians 1:9). Our hope is in Christ alone.

We now have a destiny (a pre-planned destination) and a good plan for our lives (our walk of life). The choice is ours to walk in the things He has planned for us! Peace with God—what a wonderful gift! Because of all that Jesus did upon the Cross, His righteousness is imputed now to us, and we have become the righteousness of God simply because we are in Him (Romans 4:6-8;
2 Corinthians 5:21).

Life becomes an adventure with limitless possibilities when we know these simple truths!
