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.”

God's grace is not random or chance. Christ came at precisely the right time, deliberately, purposefully, to extend the grace of God over Jew and Gentile alike that all who believe might receive adoption into the family of God as his children.
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! John, the forerunner of Christ, fixes our attention on the need for true preparation for the Lord's coming. Such preparation consists in repentance and reconciliation with God and all people through the Lord Jesus Christ.
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! The resurrection from the dead for all believers is a source of great hope and joy. Death is not the end of our bodies. Rather, we shall be reunited, body, and soul, when Christ returns. And our happy existence in that â€œnew heaven and earthâ€ goes beyond our most joyful comprehension.
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! Godâ€™s will is not limited by the possibilities that limit us. His blessings to his children are often beyond our imagination. And the most â€œimpossibleâ€ blessing of all is the pardon of our countless sins through faith in Jesus Christ. May God be forever praised by making the impossible possible in Christ.
2 Timothy 4:6-8,16-18
Since the Lord defended him in the past against many attacks, Paul was confident of the Lordâ€™s faithfulness right up to the time he entered heaven.
See God's Promise in the Face of Struggle October 16, 2016
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! Disciples of our Lord Jesus share many qualities. As Jesus describes, they count the cost of following him and making him first priority in their lives. They also share a wisdom which comes down from above, the enlightenment of faith. Finally, as Paul urged Philemon, Christians put the best interests of God's kingdom before their own.
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! The truth of God's Word is often opposed in this world, and when it is, the Christian may suffer. Believers can expect opposition from prophets and other children of darkness. Yet, throughout these struggles, the Christian knows that he will ultimately attain the harvest of righteousness.
August 7, 2016 Do All Things Really Work for My Good?
Welcome to all worshipers of Jesus! To know Christ in faith is the meaning and purpose of this life. Jesus tells the parable of a "fool" who thought the amount of material possessions he had were what gave his life value. The writer of Ecclesiastes and Paul also warn against letting the things of this world blind us to our real goal- eternal life.
Jesus told his disciples of his coming suffering, death, and resurrection. Peter's clear confession of Christ in the face of so much false information about him is a wonderful example for us.
Although Jesus ascended, he does not leave us on our own. He continues to send the Spirit and to offer salvation full and free. We eagerly await his second and final coming when he will take us to himself in heaven. So we pray, â€œCome Lord Jesus.â€
Paul and Barnabas preach the message of salvation to the crowds of people. However, jealous Jews stir up persecution against Paul and Barnabas and force them to leave. But God used persecution to spread his Word to many others, Jews and Gentiles alike.
