Ours is a congregation, which desires to reflect the preeminence of Christ in all things through the power of the Holy Spirit unto the glory of God the Father.
So we preach Christ crucified in all of Scriptures as the only Redeemer of the world, able to forgive us of our sins, no matter how big or many; able to transform us, no matter how broken or vile; able to unite us, no matter how diverse our backgrounds; and able to give us true joy and peace, no matter what our circumstances may be.
We believe that our mission is impossible apart from the life-giving, life-transforming power of the Holy Spirit, which is made available to us through prayer.

And God will not fail to achieve this majestic vision in us. The zeal of the Lord will surely make it come to its glorious fruition! From the very beginning, on that tragic day when our First Parents rebelled against God and fell in sin, God was prepared to give us His Son as our Savior in the covenant of grace. This shows His determination not to let anything stop Him from saving His people, even the sacrifice of His only Son! And He repeated and reiterated that promise again and again in all the different administrations of the covenant of grace, even in the Mosaic Covenant. In this covenant of grace, God is not just the Law-giver; He is also the Law-fulfiller and the Curse-bearer in His Son! We find our forgiveness in this Curse-bearer. We find our righteousness in this Law-fulfiller! Why should we cling to sin? Why should we cling to the false idols of the world and put our hope in their false advertisement when only disappointments follow without fail? Let us cling to Jesus Christ! If you knew Google would be the kind of company it is now ten years ago, would you have just watched in grow or invest in it as much as possible? If God is working to complete His glorious salvation, which He cannot fail, would we just sit back and watch or would we consider it a privilege and blessing to participate in that infallible, glorious work? In Him we find all of God's blessings and promises fulfilled! He is our all in all! As we abide in Jesus Christ, our Law-fulfiller, we will receive the strength to live by God's holy law and experience the joy of living by His holy will--like the braches of the vine, which vigorously sucks the sap from the vine to bear much fruit!
