We exist to show all people regardless of their background or journey in life the GRACE of the gospel through Jesus Christ.
Grace is lived out in 3 ways
Grace from above
We receive grace (God’s unmerited favor) from above through the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord Jesus. It shows us that all good things come from Him!
Grace breathed in
The grace we receive by faith starts working in our lives; it reveals that although we don’t deserve it, we are loved. Through the Word of God, we learn to boldly honor Him, living for him and humbly resting on His finished work.
Grace breathed out
We give by grace what we have received by grace! We share the gospel so people close and far from God can come to His knowledge and experience the transforming power that is found in Jesus Christ.
