one & only

new sermon series begins sunday

Some people imagine a god, most of us in fact. We make one up. That imaginary “god” becomes our god, and that’s what we worship. But the one true God is not made-up. He exists. He’s real! This God - the God Who Is - has revealed himself to us in his word, the Bible. The Bible, in turn, points us to Jesus as the perfect image and expression of God - the one we look to and listen to if we want to truly see and hear God.

We don’t make up God. He made us! And through Jesus, he invites us to gaze on his beauty and listen in wonder to his voice so that we may worship him, the One & Only.
