Who is Jesus?
Jesus is the center of this church because we believe he is the center of everything. He is God. The entire Bible is about him. All of history is his. We love him, serve him, worship him, follow him, and talk about him.
Cradle: Jesus Comes
2000 years ago the eternal Son of God became a human being and was born in a barn. He left the beauty and perfection of heaven to come and live in poverty in a broken world. The human race was separated from God, who is perfect, by our crimes against him. We were his enemies and still he came to us. Jesus lived 30 years working a job, living, losing, and loving, as one of us. He came to us. He knows our pain and weakness. He wasn’t hansom. He wasn’t rich. Jesus is the most humble missionary in the history of the world.

Cross: Jesus Dies
The one man who lived a perfect life took our punishment. After three years of loving and serving people he died a bloody death surrounded by criminals. Jesus was beaten, mocked, and tortured. He took all of our brokenness and evil on himself. He paid the price for our crimes. He was rejected and murdered so we can be given life forever and be with him.

Resurrection: Jesus Lives
After three days of lying dead in a tomb Jesus broke the chains of death and was resurrected physically. This was the final proof that He was not just a teacher. Jesus was and is, and will always be God. He is alive today. He is moving in huge ways to change history. He is moving in small ways to change lives. Jesus is not just another historical figure. He is alive and well. His grave is empty. We can know him. We will one day see him.
