What we believe

We believe in Jesus Christ, the center of our lives

Jesus is the basis on which our faith stands

Jesus boldly proclaimed, "I am the way the truth and the life."  He is the principle around which everything revolves.

Jesus is true God, true man

Jesus is not a simple moral teacher among many.  The apostles and many saints would not have given their their lives for anything less than the real Jesus, the true son of God.

Jesus desires a personal relationship with each of us.

Jesus loves and desires us beyond any human understanding. He calls us to something greater, more fulfilling, something beyond our immediate understanding, to true freedom and joy.
