To seek those living without faith, to serve others so that they may have hope, to share the good news of Jesus so that they will know love.
"Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." (Matthew 28.19-20)
OUR CORE BELIEFS:
God communicates in various ways but most comprehensively through the biblical witness of Jesus.
God created the world and universe according to his good purpose.
God made people to live in harmony with each other, creation, and Him.
Human faithlessness introduced evil, suffering, death into the world.
God sent His son, Jesus, into the world to live faithfully and to bear the burden of human faithlessness.
By raising Jesus from the dead, God proved the new way of life in Jesus is stronger than evil, suffering and death.
The new way of life offered in Jesus is received through trust, a change of heart, and baptism.
Followers of Jesus are filled with God's Spirit who guides and transforms believers into a community that bearing witness to Jesus and the new way of life.
When physical life as we know it ends, followers of Jesus will forever live joyfully in God's presence. Rejectors of Jesus will live sorrowfully apart from God.
