Know Jesus

Begin your faith journey.

The world is seeking meaning and hope and a place to belong. We believe that there is one hope for this life and the life to come through the saving grace of Jesus. The best way to know Jesus is through God’s word, the Bible. The word of God shows us our fractured relationship with a holy God and that, through Jesus, that relationship can be restored. Our hope and prayer is for you to know the transforming power of Jesus and His love for you.

We would love to pray for you or connect you to someone to help you in this journey.

God’s Design

We see beauty, purpose, and evidence of God’s design around us.

The Bible tells us that God originally planned a world that worked perfectly—where everything and everyone fit together in harmony.

God made each of us with a purpose—to worship Him and walk with Him.

“God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.” Genesis 1:31

 

Sin

Life doesn’t work when we ignore God and His original design for our lives.

We selfishly insist on doing things our own way. The Bible calls this sin. We all sin and distort the original design.

The consequence of our sin is separation from God—in this life and for all eternity.

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

Brokenness

Sin leads to a place of brokenness. We see this all around us and in our own lives as well.

When we realize life is not working, we begin to look for a way out. We tend to go in many directions trying different things to figure it out on our own.

Brokenness leads to a place of realizing a need for something greater.

“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served something created instead fo the Creator.” Romans 1:25

Gospel

At this point, we need a remedy—some good news.

Because of His love, God did not leave us in our brokenness. Jesus, God in human flesh, came to us and lived perfectly according to God’s design.

Jesus came to rescue us—to do for us what we could not do for ourselves. He took our sin and shame to the cross, paying the penalty of our sin by His death. Jesus was then raised from the dead—to provide the only way for us to be rescued and restored to a relationship with God.

“For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and only Son.” John 3:16

Repent & Believe

Simply hearing this Good News is not enough.

We must admit our sinful brokenness and stop trusting in ourselves. We don’t have the power to escape this brokenness on our own. We need to be rescued.

We must ask God to forgive us—turning from sin to trust only in Jesus. This is what it means to repent and believe.

Believing, we receive new life through Jesus and God turns our lives in a new direction.

“Repent and believe in the good news.” Mark 1:15b

Recover & Pursue

When God restores our relationship to Him, we begin to discover meaning and purpose in a broken world. Now we can pursue God’s design in all areas of our lives.

Even when we fall, we understand God’s pathway to be restored—this same Good News of Jesus.

God’s Spirit empowers us to pursue His design and assures us of His presence in this life and for all eternity.

“For it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to desire and to work out His good purpose.” Philippians 2:13
