“I am the light of the world,”
We are a Christ-centered, biblically grounded, ethnically diverse people called to personal discipleship in Christ Jesus. Our commitment to Christ propels us to be people of prayer, purpose, and passion as we seek to share the gospel of God’s redemptive love.
Through the cross of Christ we have great hope in the power of forgiveness. We are empowered by the Holy Spirit to overcome alienation and break the bonds of guilt, constantly striving for the triumph of hope over despair.
It is through our faith in Jesus Christ that we seek to truly love and respect all people and to see all people as truly precious gifts of God. “And now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; and the greatest of these is love,” 1 Corinthians 13:13.
