Our Vision

 

To be a growing, vibrant Church that is reaching out, impacting and transforming people’s lives.

To provide ministry that gives its highest priority to proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ, in a meaningful way to the various people groups in our community.

To be a church that exalts the Lord through Holy Spirit inspired worship, and experiences the manifest presence of God.‚Äč

 

In case you haven't noticed,its not easy to follow Jesus Christ. The world around is is loud, scary, confusing, tempting and challenging.

How can we stay grounded in our faith as we constantly deal with questions, struggles, and pressures every day? Every Sunday Pastor Robin direcly deals with the real and relevant issues we face with Christ centered biblical truth and encouragement.

Word, Relationship and Ministry work together to holistically model discipleship principles taught by Jesus. The goal of discipleship is to develop healthy believers that walk by faith, share their faith, and multiply their faith.

  • To walk by faith means to be living as a Christian in obedience to Jesus.
  • To share faith means retelling God’s story and how He has worked in your life and in redemptive history.
  • To multiply faith means to bring others into God’s fold and make disciples of their own.

Our heart and vision is for our community, we want to see everyone grow to their full potential and purpose, through love, nurturing, listening, caring and discipleship.

 

A real life of meaning is a life filled with fulfillment, acceptance and purpose. We find it in a relationship with Jesus Christ. No one in human history has made the claims Jesus made and given such great proofs to back them up. He claimed to be God, to be able to forgive sins, and to be the only way through which we can know God the Father. Jesus backed up those claims through his resurrection from the dead. He is, truly, the most unique person who ever lived...much more than a great teacher.

The Bible says that Jesus was God who became man -- "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us."3 He was "the exact representation of his [God's] being."4 In short, Jesus Christ revealed exactly what God is like. So how do we begin a relationship with him?

We don't begin a relationship with God by trying to be a better person. Trying harder to win God's approval is not the way he wants us to live. Have you ever been in a relationship with someone in which you had to try to win that person's approval? It's no fun.

God has such a genuine love for us that he himself provided the way for us to get close to him...but there is a problem. Currently, what stands in the way of us connecting with God is our sin (our self-centeredness shown by our anger, our hurtful words, our impatience, our selfishness, greed, etc.). 

So what has God done so we can have a close relationship with him? Jesus Christ ("God in the flesh") took all of our sin on his shoulders while he willingly died on a cross. He did this so we could be completely forgiven, completely acceptable to him.

This is exactly what Jesus did for each of us on the cross. He made the great sacrifice of being beaten, humiliated, whipped and crucified on our behalf. He now asks us to respond to his sacrifice by inviting him into our lives.

God wants us to know Him.....

He wants us to know him and to experience his love, joy and peace. When we ask him into our lives, we receive his forgiveness, and we begin a relationship with him that's meant to last forever. Jesus said, "I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come into him (or her)."5
