What We Believe...
Jesus proclaimed the reign of God:
Preaching good news to the poor... and release to the captives,
teaching by word and deed and blessing the children,
healing the sick and binding up the broken hearted...
eating with outcasts, forgiving sinners,
and calling all to repent and believe the gospel...
Unjustly condemned for blasphemy and sedition,
Jesus was crucified, suffering the depths of human pain
and giving his life for the sins of the world.
God raised this Jesus from the dead, vindicating his sinless life,
breaking the power of sin and evil, delivering us from death to life eternal...
With believers in every time and place, we rejoice that nothing in life or death
can separate us from the love of God, in Christ Jesus our Lord.
