All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. How then is a loving, yet perfect, holy and just God to respond to man’s sin? The answer is at the cross, where God’s love, holiness, and justice come together to rescue and redeem mankind by grace, through faith in Jesus.

He has given us His inspired Word and also revealed Himself to us in His creation. Join us for this important discussion to better understand Who God is and why this question matters…
Luke begins his Gospel account with John the Baptist preparing the way for Jesus. John is an amazing man of God, whom the Old Testament prophets, Isaiah and Micah referred to as the one who goes before the Lord and prepares the way. This is the same John who says that the one who comes after him is greater than he, whose sandals he is unworthy to untie.
And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith.
