We believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is our only access to have peace with God:
“Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.”
The gospel is simply the message of the Bible coming to full completion in the person of Jesus Christ. Jesus is the good news of the gospel: He left his heavenly throne and became flesh on this earth through a virgin birth. Jesus lived in perfect obedience to God, and lived a sinless life that we could not live. This perfect obedience meant he was the perfect sacrifice to take the punishment for our sin, and he bore the wrath of God on the behalf of sinners. By these things He has made a way for each person to be saved from the ultimate consequences of his or her sins.
We believe Jesus Christ came to earth in order to create His Church (with a capital C)… people all across the face of the globe who are reborn by the Holy Spirit that live to bring glory to God.
We believe, therefore, that God intends to join each person He saves to a particular local church (with a small c)… a group of people who know and love one another and who serve Christ together as believers in God and witnesses to the grace of the gospel.
We believe that Jesus continues, moment by moment, to love and nurture the Church, and that He is coming again to receive His Church.
Our vision is to form a growing community of people in the Roselawn/Demotte area who are building their lives around the amazing news of the Gospel.
Our mission is to glorify God by building a gospel-centered community that proclaims and demonstrates the transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
