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.

Oh, how important it is for us to review this glorious past we have in Jesus Christ, to reaffirm who we are in Him because of what He has done for us, not because of what we have done! This means what defines us is not what we have done or failed to have done; what defines us ultimately is what Christ has done for us in our place as our Redeemer and Representative. We cannot change the fact of our past--all our pains and failures and sorrows and disappointments of our past. But we do not have to be slaves of that past. Christ has changed the meaning of that past--a powerful testimony to His amazing grace that saved a wretch like me, to His powerful victory over all my sins and failures, all my brokenness and inadequacies! Because His faithfulness is everlasting and His grace is renewed every morning, we can declare every moment, "I've been redeemed. I'm not who I used to be!" With thankfulness we can recount Christ's victories and relish them as our own--His victory over the guilt of our sin, the condemning wrath of God, the curse of the moral law, this present evil world, the bondage to Satan, the dominion of sin, the evil of afflictions, the sting of death, the victory of the grave, and the everlasting damnation!
