He Is...We're Not! | Simply put, He is God and we are not. As God, He is perfect in person, power, and plan. He is above and beyond any other being in existence. Because this is true we recognize Him as such through what we believe and how we live.
"I am the Lord, there is no other God." -Isaiah 45:5 NLT
He Speaks...We Listen! | When the most powerful, perfect, loving being speaks we believe it's important to listen. God has shared His thoughts and ways as recorded in the Bible. The Bible is His Word written for our benefit. His thoughts and ways ALWAYS trump ours.
"My ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts are high than your thoughts." -Isaiah 55:9 NLT
He Loves...We Try! | Whatever God is, He also does. God says that He is love, therefore He loves. We see and experience God's love through Jesus and his death for our sins and His resurrection for our life. His love is perfect, full, rich, and complete. This is the pattern or standard by which we strive to love one another and the whole world.
"...for God is love." -1 John 4:8 NLT
He Goes...We Follow! | Because God loves the world so much, He came into the world to pay for the sins of all humanity. This is GOOD news! His mission is for the whole world to hear of His great love for them expressed through Jesus Christ. His mission is our mission; to go into all the world and share the life-giving message of Jesus Christ.
"For the Son of Man came to seek and save those who are lost." -Luke 19:10 NLT
