Our vision is of the Gospel. Of Community. Of Mission.
The Gospel is the foundation everything is built upon. Without the person and work of Jesus, there is no community, only alienation from God and others. Without Jesus there is no real mission, only self-serving work.
When Jesus of Nazareth died and rose again, he finished the work of redemption that God had promised ever since humans first rebelled in the Garden of Eden. By resting in Jesus and receiving his work on our behalf by faith, we are forgiven and accepted by the God who made us. We are adopted as His sons and daughters and are, more and more, shaped by Him into the image of His Son and enabled to die to sin and to live to God.
And that changes things.
