Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

walk in grace

"Don’t buy the lie
that cultivating condemnation and wallowing in your shame
is somehow pleasing to God,
or that a constant, low-grade guilt
will somehow promote holiness and spiritual maturity.
It’s just the opposite!
God is glorified when we believe with all our hearts
that those who trust in Christ can never be condemned.
It’s only when we receive his free gift of grace
and live in the good of total forgiveness
that we’re able to turn from old, sinful ways of living
and walk in grace-motivated obedience."
- C.J. Mahaney
