Christ Centered         Grace Oriented        Sabbath Celebrating

Christ Centered

Jesus is the fullness of grace and truth. Christianity is founded, not on a principle, but on the person of Jesus Christ; it’s His presence dwelling in us. When we give our lives to the One who gave His life for us, we discover who we are meant to be. In Christ, we know who we are because our identity is grounded in Him. 

Grace Oriented

 In His grace, Jesus doesn’t take away our rights (to justice) under the law. Instead, He asks us to release our rights so that we can participate in His grace. With our gratitude for His grace, we’re able to suffer injustice for others just as Jesus suffered injustice at our hands for us. As we share His grace, we feel His love flow through us, flooding us with joy.  In Him, we are complete.

 

Sabbath Celebrating

When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we’re released from the penalty under the law because Jesus paid the price for us. The Sabbath is a day of rest to celebrate our Creator, yet for the Christian it has additional meaning. It becomes our rest in Christ. Jesus is our salvation and we rest in Him. We celebrate our Creator and our Redeemer on the day He sanctified and blessed.
