Our Mission...... As men, women, and children united in faith in Christ Jesus, we believe he commanded us to “go and make disciples.” We therefore will proclaim the Gospel of Christ through our words and actions to the community, campus, and others. We will teach God’s word in its truth and purity to help each other grow and mature in faith preparing us, God’s people, for “works of service.”

Sermon Based off of John 20:19-31
Jesus appears to his disciples, first on Easter evening and then a week later. Thomas, who was absent on the first occasion, is present on the second, and he responds in faith. "These" - all that John had written in this Gospel - "are written that you may believe"
Jesus instructs his followers about his suffering, death, and resurrection. When Peter Tries to discourage him, Jesus points out that the way of the Christ - and of the Christian - is the way of the cross.
Stand firm in Christ's freedom! If we turn back to the law to earn God's favorÃ¢â‚¬â€even a little whileÃ¢â‚¬â€we are turning away from the gospel of Christ. As St Augustine said, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Grace, unless it is free, is not grace.Ã¢â‚¬Â
