the good news of jesus christ

We're truly glad you've taken a moment to explore our page. If you're curious about the gospel, it's the foundational message of hope that lies at the heart of our faith. Whether you're just starting to explore these truths or are seeking to understand what we believe, we're here to walk with you every step of the way.


The Bible begins with the fundamental truth that God is the Creator of all things. He is perfectly holy, deserving of our honor and obedience. As it states in Psalm 24:1 (ESV), "The earth is the LORD's, and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein." God created us to have a relationship with Him, to glorify Him, and to enjoy Him forever.


However, humanity has fallen short of God's glory. According to Romans 3:23 (ESV), "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God." Our rebellion against God, known as sin, has broken the relationship between God and us. Our sin leads to physical death and, more critically, spiritual death. This is God’s judgment on sin. This judgement is vividly depicted in 2 Thessalonians 1:9 (ESV), "They will suffer the punishment of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might."


But God, in His great love, made provision for this our sin and His judgment to be overcome. John 3:16 (ESV) declares, "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." Jesus Christ, God's only Son, lived a sinless life, died on the cross for our sins, and rose again, demonstrating His victory over sin and death. Through Christ's sacrifice, we can be reconciled to God and escape the judgment meant for our sins.


The appropriate response to this good news is to repent and believe. Acts 17:30 (ESV) commands, "The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent." To repent means to turn away from sin, and to believe is to place your complete trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. This act of faith is beautifully articulated in Romans 10:9 (ESV), "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."

Following repentance and faith, baptism serves as an outward sign of an inward change. It symbolizes dying to one's old self and rising to a new life in Christ. As Jesus commanded in Matthew 28:19 (ESV), "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."


We invite you to trust in Christ and His message of hope. The gospel is God's power for salvation to everyone who believes. If your heart is moved by these truths, we encourage you to reach out, to learn more, and to respond in repentance and faith. Our church and leadership is ready to support you, answer your questions, and be you on your faith journey!
