WHAT IS THE GOSPEL?
We believe that God has graciously revealed Himself to us through His creation and through Scripture. In Scripture we see that God created all things and made man to live in fellowship with Him. But man sinfully rebelled and sought to live according to his own ways. This same sinful rebellion against God is in every one of us, by birth and by choice. Therefore all of us stand condemned before God. But God, being rich in mercy, loved us even in our rebellion. He sent Jesus into our fallen world to reclaim what was lost.
We believe that Jesus was fully God and fully man. We believe that He lived the life we should have lived, and then died the death that we deserved. He died on a cross and was raised to life by God the Father three days later. We believe that all who repent of their sins and trust in Jesus as Savior and Lord will receive the gift of life: life in restored fellowship with God now, and eternal life with God when we die.
"But when the kindness of God our Savior and his love for mankind appeared, he saved us--not by works of righteousness that we had done, but according to his mercy--through the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit. He poured out his Spirit on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior so that, having been justified by his grace, we may become heirs with the hope of eternal life." (Titus 3:4-7, CSB)
