What is a Christian?

You could ask a million people and get a million different answers. Some would say a Christian is a weaker person who needs religion as a crutch to make it through the day. Others would say a Christian in a zealot or someone too consumed with eternity to function in the present world.

The name “Christian” has been used and abused by many. It has been misrepresented, misinterpreted and misunderstood. It has been used to start wars, divide countries and separate families.

Christian has also been used to give literally billions of dollars in charitable donations in causes ranging from poverty, hunger, providing clean water and spreading love throughout the world. Did you know that the largest charitable entity in the world is the church?

The Bible is clear that Christians have specific roles, responsibilities, characteristics and callings. Whether you are a lifelong “Christian” or have never darkened the doors of a church let us help you unwrap what the Bible has to say to Christians. If nothing else it will expand your world view and give you a clearer understanding of what so many are talking about.

Join us on Sunday mornings at 11:00 am as we discover what the Bible says a Christian is. You will be welcomed by a church family striving to love God and our community by sharing the timeless truths of Scripture. There are nurseries for the little ones and a warm greeting for everyone. Join us this Sunday!
