God loves you and desires a personal, on-going relationship with you. God created us for personal relationship with Him, but the first humans defied God by willfully abusing the trust He placed in them, thus bringing sin into the world. Sin eternally alienates us from our Holy Father. The only Hope for reconciliation with God is by making restitution with a sinless sacrifice. Since God alone is sinless, only He could satisfy this debt.
For this purpose he sent His Son, Jesus Christ, who was born of a virgin and lived a sinless life on earth. He voluntarily paid for our sins by dying on the cross as our substitute. His death provided salvation and restoration with God for all who believe on Him and receive grace by trusting Him alone.
Relationship with Jesus
Jesus has made relationship with God the Father simple; so simple it’s almost child-like.
If you have accepted Christ and received his gracious gift of salvation or have more questions about relationship with God, we’d love to hear from you.
Baptism is a celebration of the decision you have made to follow Christ and commit your life to God. It’s actually an ancient symbolic ceremony where followers of Christ publicly express their salvation by being baptized (immersed in water), showing that they are participating in the death, burial and resurrection of Christ by burying their old nature and being raised into a new life.
People sometimes have a lot of questions about baptism. That’s why we provide an orientation the week prior to all our baptism celebrations.
