our savior

The gospel in 1 minute
god's loving rescue

You probably have heard lots of different things about Jesus of Nazareth.  We invite both the curious and the skeptical to come and ask your questions.  

Our basic message is this: Jesus saves.  He saves beggars, the wealthy, criminals, housewives, addicts, and upstanding citizens.  He does this because we all need a Savior and need to realize these five simple truths.

1. Realize that God loves you.

John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

2. Realize that everyone is a sinner.

Romans 3:23 “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

3. Realize that sin has a price that must be paid. 

Romans 6:23 “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life, through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

4. Realize that Jesus Christ died to pay your price. 

Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”

5. Repent of your sin and ask Jesus Christ to forgive you so that you may receive eternal life.

Romans 10:9, 13 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved... For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

our purpose

Christ has given us a mission to help people get spiritually healthy.  

We seek to do this by three simple steps:

Worship

Love God 

Mark 12:30 

And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment.

Love Each Other

Galatians 6:10 

As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
