Christ is the essence of all we believe and our motivation in ministry!
Jesus Christ is the Word of God.
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14
Christ is unchanging.
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.” Hebrews 13:8
The Word of God is absolute truth.
“Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.” John 17:17
Salvation comes through Jesus alone.
“Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
There is no one righteous apart from Jesus.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23
There is a cost for sin.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Romans 6:23
Jesus paid the price for sin.
“…that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 1 Corinthians 15:3b-4
Jesus died for all and now lives.
“For the death that He died He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God.” Romans 6:10
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but made alive by the Spirit…” 1 Peter 3:18
Jesus came to give abundant life.
“I have come that they may have life, and they may have it more abundantly.” John 10:10
Through faith in Jesus Christ, we receive the promise of the Holy Spirit.
“…that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.” Galatians 3:14
The Holy Spirit dwelling in the heart of a believer is the power to live and fulfill the call of God in each of our lives.
“But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Acts 1:8
