The Gospel is the Good News that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God who died for our sins and was raised back to life to never die again.

OUR MISSION is to serve as a local fellowship of Christian faith which effectively celebrates, lives, shares, and explains the Gospel.

Explain the Gospel

We recognize that the Church – both local and universal – has at least two roles in the world: a) prophetic;and b) redemptive. In its prophetic role, the Church, like the prophets of old, challenges the culture over various forms of idolatry, injustice and sin. In its prophetic role, the Church warns the world of divine judgement. It reminds the world of its brokenness, its mortality, its need to be right with God and to respect each other. In its redemptive role, the Church is to live and offer a message of hope, justice, purpose, mercy and grace that flows from the Good News that Jesus died for us all and was raised back to life to never die again. It is a message that can bring renewal and revival to both individuals and societies as a whole.

In other words, to use a metaphor employed by Jesus in his Sermon on Mount, the Church is to serve as Salt & Light. As salt, the Church seasons a society with those redemptive attributes of hope, justice, purpose, mercy and grace. As salt, the Church can act as a preservative, helping a civilization to function and further develop in a just and lawful manner for the greater good. As our mission statement conveys, our objective is to effectively function as a local church which celebrates, lives, shares and explains the Good News. The more effectively we function as a local church, the more effectively we will serve as salt & light in our community and region.
