Articles Of Faith

Faith, as defined in the book of Hebrews in the Bible, is “the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen,” and that whole “not seen” part of things can be difficult to wrestle with in hard times.
Christians believe that the Bible is at its heart a story about God’s love

We Believe in:
