3 Reasons Diversity Is So Important

Baptism Stories: Taylor
“I grew up in the church as a young kid and was even baptized at 13. But when I lost my Dad at the age of 14 my life went completely off track and I lost my faith. I felt this void in my life that I constantly tried to fill with toxic relationships. Every time I considered going back to church I felt I wasn’t good enough or deserving of God’s love. I felt EMPTY. When I understood the power of God’s mercy and grace my life shifted. The emptiness I felt is now filled with love and peace. I’m reminded daily of how much God loves me when I look back at all the mess he brought me out of and how he has humbled & transformed a person like me.”
Coronavirus and the Church
How should the church respond to the coronavirus? Followers of Jesus are facing the same uncertainty and fear as everyone else. We are watching the same news and events unfold. How do we answer to this important question?
Jesus & Injustice
It doesn’t take much searching to find injustice in our world. Whether it is race, religion, economics, or gender, inequality seems to be part of the human condition. Jesus experienced many of the same injustices we struggle with today. We should not be surprised that Jesus stood against injustice, but his response may surprise you.
