We believe that the same God who lovingly and carefully made us, longs for relationship with us. We believe that He is deeply concerned with our sorrow and He delights in us, just as earthly parents delight themselves in their children.
We believe that we are here to know God and to serve Him. We are motivated by the knowledge that we are the beneficiaries of an immeasurable love that has been given to us without obligation. We want to pass on to others the love that has been so freely given to us because of our gratitude and because of the joy of giving.
There are many who believe that the universe and everything in it happened by chance and that ultimately it has no purpose except to exist until the next big bang blows everything to oblivion. When we experience agonizing events in our lives, this fatalistic perspective may seem easiest to accept, but how terribly discouraging this is. What hope does it leave for our future?
Why would our very existence be for nothing? Why would billions of people be born, live their lives and die for no apparent reason? What hope is there if all our labor and toil, all our love and passion and all that we strive to be will ultimately disappear forever in a vacuum of meaninglessness?
In reality, what we see is an infinite universe filled with incredible order, complexity and beauty. To think that all of this is a product of random chance doesn’t add up. It makes so much more sense and produces great confidence in us to believe that the vast order and detail found in creation testifies to a brilliant Creator.
We want you to understand that we care about what is happening to you because of what we believe.
