We Believe that God sent his son, Jesus Christ, to defeat sin and death on our behalf. In Christ’s cross, sin is atoned for. In Christ’s resurrection, death is overcome. Through him, God poured His own spirit upon those who would receive Him, to unite them to Jesus. Therefore, our identity is in Christ. In Him, we are loved, forgiven, reconciled, and made alive. In Him we are changed, challenged, given new meaning and forged into an eternal community of believers.
