Real God, Real People
When talking about what we believe, you’ll often hear us say “Real God, Real People.” But, what’s that all about?
We believe in a very real God, real in the sense that He wants to be involved in our everyday life. In fact, He wants to be more than involved, He wants to be the center around which our lives revolve so that He can lead us into the purpose-filled lives that He created us to live. As a church family, we think it’s essential to be real in the way that we relate to each other. If we wear a mask, we can never form authentic relationships with people. Masks can’t relate.
We all face challenges . . . pretty much every day. But we don’t have to fight the same old problems, and fail in the same old ways. Because of Jesus, we can have hope, faith and the power to change. The Bible says “To as many as believed him, to them he gave the power to become the children of God.” When we are real about the path that we are on we can learn together, pray for each other, help each other apply the truths of the Bible in our lives, hold each other accountable and encourage each other.
The Bible says that He is changing us from glory to glory . . . molding us little by little into His image. We believe that if we give our lives to Him . . . put Him in the center . . . are willing to be real before Him (and each other) . . . and ready to try things His way that He can . . . That He wants to lead us into the great life that He planned for us.
