We believe that the Bible is God's word, and determines what we teach and how we apply those teachings. Sometimes those teachings and applications contradict human logic, popular opinion or cultural acceptance, but all of those things have been corrupted by sin. Because of that, they serve God's Word instead of rule over it.
Our hearts have been corrupted by sin too and because of that we are born into this world with a broken relationship with our perfect God. The only one who could repair that relationship is God himself, so he sent his own Son to do what we could not; live the perfect life and give his life on the cross to pay our debt to him. God loved us even though we didn't deserve it. And out of love he tells us that when he empowers us to believe in Jesus as our Savior, we receive his perfect obedience and the benefits of his death on the cross that paid for our sin.
We exist to grow closer to the God who saved us by growing in our understanding of the Word he gave us and the sacraments with which he supplied us. We also want to share those gifts with the people of Apache Junction, East Mesa and you.
