Jesus said, “I did not come to bring peace, but a sword.” Jesus Christ was and is the dividing line that separates all of humanity.
a refreshing return to Christ-centered, fellowship-driven simplicity. we are a Reformed Baptist church with family-integrated worship.
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
God Is Holy and Sovereign
We were created by a personal God to love, serve, and enjoy endless fellowship with him. It was Jesus himself who created everything (Jn 1:3; Col 1:16). He also owns and rules everything (Ps 103:19). He has authority over our lives and we owe him absolute allegiance, obedience, and worship. He is perfectly holy (Isa 6:3).
Mankind Is Sinful and Guilty
Everyone is guilty of sin: "There is no man who does not sin" (1Ki 8:46). We're utterly incapable of understanding, loving, or pleasing God on our own (Ro 3:10-12). God's holiness and justice demand that all sin be punished by death (Eze 18:4). Simply changing our patterns of behavior can't eliminate its consequences.
Jesus Is Lord and Savior
Even though God's justice demands death for sin, his love has provided a Savior who paid the penalty and died for sinners (1Pe 3:18). Christ's death satisfied the demands of God's justice, and his perfect life satisfied the demands of God's holiness (2Co 5:21), enabling him to forgive and save those who have faith in him (Ro 3:26).
“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith … not neglecting to meet together.”

“Preach the word; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.”
Though the gulf between them was wide and deep, the gospel of Jesus Christ united the Jews and Gentiles in the early church.
If not Christ, then how can we be saved? The law provides little more than retribution, but Christ gives eternal life.
In Christ, there are no walls, no classes, no races, no genders, and no distinctions of any kind. We are one in Christ, members of the same body.
