Ash Wednesday 2020
What our world needs now is . . . Love!
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.
A Love Story
Everything Starts with God!
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
We believe EVERYTHING STARTS WITH GOD! He is the eternal, perfect, personal creator, sustainer and ruler of the universe. He is the only true God. He is one in His essence but has revealed Himself to mankind as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
ETERNAL - God is!
Dogmatics, in each and all of its divisions and subdivisions, with every one of its questions and answers, with all its biblical and historical assertions, with the whole range of its formal and material considerations, examinations and condensations, can first and last, as a whole and in part, say nothing else but that God is.
-Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics
INDEPENDENT - Immensitas – God exists independently of place and space. He is sine mensura – without measure.
PRESENT – God is eternally present!
PERSONAL – God is eternally personal!
