We are a people who know disappointment, shame, hurt, humiliation, brokenness and fear. We also find much hope, beauty, courage, restoration, victory and JOY in the person and life of Jesus.
When we, as the Church, align our lives with Jesus and His teaching, the people and places we come in contact with will be changed for the good. We are HOPE in the flesh, to a world desperately needing the LOVE of Christ.
“You are the salt of the earth. But if salt loses its flavor, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled on by people. You are the light of the world. A city located on a hill cannot be hidden. People do not light a lamp and put it under a basket but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before people, so that they can see your good deeds and give honor to your Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:13-16 NET
