Our Vision

We want to "cultivate a community of caring believers growing together in Christ likeness." Our vision is to reach Belton and the surrounding communities with the truth about Jesus Christ.
The Problem
 

The Bible tells us about God's amazing love for us. This love is embodied in the person of Jesus Christ. It is our goal to share this message with our friends, neighbors, coworkers, and our community.

We know that God cares deeply about the lives of people from every walk of life. God created us to have wonderful fellowship with him. Tragically, we have gone our own way apart from God. Men and women throughout the centuries have struggled with pride, greed, self-centered intentions and an overall inability to fully grasp the meaning and purpose of life. The Bible calls this self-centeredness sin. It is this basic problem of sin that is mankind's number one problem.

Because God is completely holy and just, our crimes against him must be punished. Just as a person earns a wage at a job, the Bible says that the wages of sin is death. The hard, cold truth of the matter is this: we all stand as condemned sinners before God, justly deserving punishment for our sins.

If that were the end of the story, we would all be like condemned prisoners on death row, waiting for our sentence to be carried out.
But we have good news!
 

The unfathomable love of God has accomplished what men could not and cannot. God became man so that he could pay the penalty for our sin. When Jesus Christ died on the cross, he had no sin of his own to pay. Instead he took the sins of the whole world -- past, present, and future -- and paid the penalty that we owe. But, He did not stay dead! Three days later He rose from the from the grave, just as He said He would, and completely conquered sin and death.

Like any present, this gift must be accepted for it to be ours. The only requirement that God demands of us now is that we accept the payment that Christ made on our behalf. It takes a personal trust in Jesus Christ as Savior for this wonderful gift to be yours.
So.....who are we?
 
We are ordinary people who have recognized that we are sinful. We make no claims to be perfect. What makes us special is that we have come into a new relationship with God through the work of Jesus Christ. We are "growing together," helping one another in our relationship with God. We would love the opportunity to help you in your relationship with God as well.
