Our Church's Hope


Jesus, God’s perfect son, came into this world to seek and save those who were broken, rebellious, guilty and dead in their sins. Through Jesus’ death on a cross, we receive forgiveness of our sins. Through Jesus’ resurrection from the dead, we receive new life. This is our hope and it is good news because this is not earned as we try harder, but received as a gift that flows out of God’s great love towards us.


our church's mission
