WELCOMING YOU HOME
First, let me say that we are unmistakebly Christian. That being said, I want to reiterate what Jesus said in John 10:35, "By this shall all men know that you are my disciples if you love one another." and he also said in Matthew 22:37-40 that we must "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind, and love other people as you love yourself" When God first created human beings, he created us with a great capacity to love people in an unadulterated way. Love is a powerful affection!
At The Safest Place on Earth, we strive to love people the way God loves them, we accept the inherent dignity that every human being is created with, and without compromising the words that came out of God's "mouth" our goal is to point people to the path that leads to repentance, and then onward towards extraordinary transformation - a transformation that is beyond your imagination or comprehension.
We really believe that the Church is God's redemptive tool on this earth. Therefore we make ourselves available to develop God's church into The Safest Place on Earth. At The Safest Place on Earth, we are all pilgrims on the journey toward God. We live in a real-world, with real struggles, with real people. I must also add that because we have a real Jesus the potential for the church to be The Safest Place on Earth is greater than can be expected.
The world is yearning for authentic community. I will go out on a limb to say that even in the church people are yearning for authentic community. That's what we are striving toward - we are striving toward authentic Christian community. Will there be problems? Absolutely! Will there be struggles? Oh yeah! Come what may, we will handle all our human weaknesses with authenticity, in a way that leads us into deeper intimacy with God.
I hope I see you at The Safest Place on Earth. Come, join us for an experience that is unmistakably Christian. You won't regret it!
Your friend and fellow traveller,
