What We Believe

We believe that we have all fallen short of God's perfect plan for us and our world, and our relationship with God is broken. Jesus, God's only Son, died for us, cancelling out our spiritual debt. If we accept Jesus, he restores our relationship with God and brings us eternal peace. He is working through his Holy Spirit and the Church to bring his good kingdom more to our world and transform people's lives.

 

Our Mission 

TRANSFORMING LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST

 

Our Vision
