God is the only sovereign, wise, and good Creator of all things, who reigns as King over all creation for His own glory.
Human beings were made in God’s image to love and worship Him forever. But ever since Adam first rebelled against God, we have all been lost in sin, under God’s judgment, and unable to save ourselves.
Out of undeserved love and grace, God sent His only Son to save us from sin and reconcile us to Himself through Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection.
God offers us His gift of salvation by grace, which we receive through faith in Jesus. He makes us new, calls us to leave sin behind, and invites us to join His work in the world.

This icon is actually the Hebrew word “amar”. In the Bible it is translated as “said” most often, 2766 times, and is actually only translated as “promised” 6 times. That being said, however, it is this “said” that is used when God “said” “Let their be light!” It is “amar” that is used as “said” to tell of when God spoke the world into existance. John 1:1-5 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” It was Jesus that all things were made through and it was Jesus that was, and is, and always will be, The Word that “became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen His glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” (John 1:14)
God created the world and has sustained it ever since. He knew that His creation would reject Him before He made it; and that that rejection would be at the cost of death, a price we could not pay. Still, out of Love, He chose to make us. Not only did He chose to make us but He chose to pay the cost of our rebellion. He chose to lay down His life to redeem us, and then; He rose again, sealing us with Him forever if we believe in Him. On the cross the Creator birthed new life once more, redeeming the world, and uttering the words “It is finished”. Jesus was The Promise at the beginning, The Promise fulfilled on the cross, and The Promise sealed at the resurrection sustaining us forever that we can live with Him and love and be loved. It was for this purpose that He came into the world. “For God so Loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)
