The word “gospel” means “good news” and summarizes the historic reality that God the Father sent his Son, Jesus Christ, to endure the punishment and shame for sin in the place of rebels like us by being crucified. But now, through God’s grace, we can fully enjoy a restored relationship with God through faith in Christ. This is possible because Jesus not only died but was raised from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit.
We seek to center our lives on this gospel and find our greatest joy to be God himself. Practically, that means we trust in God and look to the Bible for the help of his Spirit in all circumstances and questions of life. We invite you to join us in pursuit of this gospel-centered joy.
