Realize-You are a Sinner.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." "There is none righteous, no not one."         
Romans 3:23; 3:10

Realize-Sin brings forth God's judgment. 
"For the wages of sin is death; But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord."      
Romans 6:23

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment."    
Hebrews 9:27

Realize-God has a remedy for sin. A way of salvation has been provided.
"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."      
John 3:16
"But God demonstrates His own love towards us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."    
Romans 5:8

Realize-You personally must accept God's gift of salvation for it to be yours.
Acknowledge that you are a sinner. Believe that Jesus died for you and put your trust in Him alone to save you. Ask Him to save you from your sins.

To Glorify God

A Place For Friendship-Nothing quite compares to the joy of Christian friendship. That's why we make it a priority to build lasting bonds between the members of our church family-bonds of concern and genuine commitment to one another. Best of all, this circle of care is ever-widening. We'd love for it to include you, too.

A Place For Service-Just as Jesus Christ came "not to be ministered unto, but to minister....." we accept the responsibility to reach out in service to others.


A Place For Worship-The primary reason we meet together is to focus our attention on God. giving him our worship and receiving blessing and enrichment from His Word. We hope that is what you experience today, and we certainly hope to see you again very soon.
