Generosity in Sacrifice

Jesus sacrificed everything for us. Because of his death and resurrection, we are assured forgiveness of sin and eternity in Heaven. Worship is our opportunity to thank God for His sacrifice for us.

Faith Believes that Dying is to Live

Christians have the best attitude about life and death. Every day is a joy, because we have a purpose – to live for Christ. And when we die? That’s even better by far. Philippians 1:18b-26

Finishing and Furnishing: Love Yourself

God wants you to love others as you love yourself.  But He’s not looking for us to love ourselves because of those identities we create: jobs, financial status, abilities, social status.

Structuring the Supports: Love Your Neighbor

We love and serve one another, not because we feel guilted into it or because we have to, but because Christ’s love compels us to do so.  Through serving, forgiving, leading, and loving others with a pure and selfless heart, we can show our neighbors (family, friends, co-workers, etc.) the love of Jesus. This is possible only because of the work of the Holy Spirit in our hearts.
