The Invitation


There is within the human soul a call to greatness. It is stronger in some than others, but it is present in all of us. It is the dream of adventure, to rise above the monotony of daily life and embark on a journey which will lead to something far bigger than ourselves. Throughout the centuries people have given up their lives following this dream and in some cases, incredible changes have occurred because some people followed their hearts rather than their stomachs.

No more spectacular or important invitation to a life of greatness exists than the one Jesus Christ offers us. It is an invitation not to comfort, ease or pleasure. On the contrary, he describes it as “carrying a cross”. But it is an invitation firmly rooted in eternity; an invitation which produces benefits which cannot be measured; an invitation that gives human life it’s highest meaning.

We are living in a time in history when the common person is more and more encouraged to accept that they really can’t think or take care of themselves, that there are smarter, more intelligent people to do that for them. There is an encouragement to be content with the status quo, with a life of little pain, few challenges, but even fewer rewards. Jesus Christ offers just the opposite. He says that if we follow him, the risks will be great, the chance of suffering even more so, but the end result of it all will be out of this world incredible.

What do you want out of life? What do you want out of eternity? If you believe there’s more to life than a fast internet connection and a big screen TV, join us for one of our weekend services.

Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
