“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.”
Is there a God?
One of the most common sequences of questioning throughout the history of mankind is, “How did we get here?” and “What do our origins mean for our present?” Everything ever created has a creator and a purpose. This universe is too complex and beautiful to be happenstance, and science cannot explain how something comes from nothingness. The creator of the universe is God, and we believe He spoke all of creation into existence for His glory.
Why Does God Allow Pain and Suffering?
All of humanity was created in the image of God to live in His kingdom, but we used our freewill to pursue our own glory. This deviation from God’s perfect plan for our lives is sin. Sin separates us from God and is the reason for our physical and spiritual death. Humanity’s sinful choices have led to every instance of pain and destruction that we see in our world today.
Is the Bible Reliable?
The Bible is God’s Word to all of humanity. It was written by human authors under God’s inspiration and is without error. God gave us the Bible to be our final source of authority in all matters and provide our primary purpose in life.
Who is Jesus?
Jesus is a real man who claimed to be God and the only way to know God. This makes his death, burial, and resurrection the most important events in human history, and it changes everything about life. The sins of mankind separate us from a perfect God who loves us and wants to have a personal relationship with us. Jesus entered into humanity, lived without sin, and willingly laid down his life to be the perfect sacrifice for everyone’s sin. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate His power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and today intercedes on our behalf, as our advocate, and will return again to Earth to re-establish His perfect kingdom.
What is the Purpose of Church?
The church is the body of Christ, not where we meet on Sundays. The church consists of all who have been reconciled with God through faith in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. We meet as a body on Sundays because the church is the means by which the Gospel is communicated to the world. Our service on Sunday is meant to unify the body and share the good news of Jesus Christ.
