Who is Jesus?

We believe that the God of the Bible is triune — 3 persons in 1 essence. Jesus is the second person of the trinity, referred to in the Scriptures as the Son of God. He is eternal, having never been created, and that through Him all of creation came into being. Scripture teaches us that God’s creation was perfect in the beginning, but mankind’s rebellion against God in the garden fractured all of creation — that is why there are disasters, death, and suffering. Because of God’s amazing love God the Son (Jesus), entered into creation, lived a sinless life, and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His triumphant power over sin, death and the devil. After His resurrection Jesus established the church, ascended to Heaven, and will one day return to the earth to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords for all of eternity.

Jesus said that He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Through His death and resurrection Jesus provided the way for us to have relationship with God. When we turn from our sin and put our faith in Jesus, we are reconciled to God the Father and are promised life everlasting. As followers of Jesus Christ we are called to live lives of surrender to God’s will — as revealed in Scripture — and are entrusted with a ministry of reconciliation. Therefore, we believe that Christians are called to give their lives to serve God, expand His kingdom, and await the day of His glorious return.

If you have never put your trust in Jesus we encourage you to do so today.

Romans 10:13 For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.
