The gospel saves us from our sins and makes us more and more like our Savior, Jesus. The heart of this process involves learning to think biblically about God and view everything else in light of him. Because theology affects our whole lives, our aim is to provide biblical teaching for knowing and following Jesus in all aspects of life.
“Equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ.”
What is the gospel and how does it affect our daily lives? What does the Bible teach? What does it look like to be a Christian in this city? The Essentials class addresses these and many other vital questions by looking at the good news of Jesus, the grand narrative of the Bible, and life together in the church. Whether you have questions or simply want to learn more, we encourage everyone to take the Essentials class at least once. Register here.
Jesus didn’t just come to heal and transform the way we relate to God, but the way we relate to each other as well. The Relationships series lays out how the good news of Jesus Christ affects our closest relationships and how we live in community with others. The classes address questions about singleness and dating, fostering healthy and loving marriages and friendships, and raising kids and teaching them about Jesus.
A three-week course developed to train us to see and approach money, debt, budgeting, giving, saving, and investing from a gospel perspective. The gospel saves us from our sins and makes us more and more like our Savior, Jesus, which involves learning to think biblically about God and viewing everything else in light of him, including our finances.
The gospel is the good news of salvation in Christ, but its application to our lives doesn’t stop once we’ve been saved. The gospel also informs our attitudes and actions in all aspects of life. The ongoing Forum classes aim to address contemporary challenges and questions regarding Christian faith and to equip Christians to respond to these issues by communicating biblical truth in a loving way.
In Matthew 28:19-20, Jesus commands everyone who has put their faith in him to be baptized in his name. In baptism, we publicly identify with Christ’s life, death, burial, and resurrection. We publicly testify that when Christ died on the cross for our sins, we died to our former life of sin against God. But as Christ was raised from the dead, so we were also raised to eternal life in relationship with him. Baptism is a significant and joyful step in every believer’s walk with the Lord, and we want to both prepare you and celebrate with you.
