This Week’s Need to Know – 02/01/2018

Solus Christus.  Christ alone.  One would think this concept would be simple.  Salvation comes from Christ alone.  However, our hearts are deceitful and desperately wicked.  Our hearts long for and demand recognition.  From the beginning of time, our hearts have told us we can do it our own way.  We can be good enough.  We can do enough.  Even today, many people hope their “good” outweighs their bad and if it does, that this will be good enough to get them into heaven.  However, this is a dangerous lie.  Jesus taught that He alone is the way to eternal life.  It is in His work we trust and it is because of His righteousness that He imputes to us that we can boldly go before our heavenly Father and enjoy a transformed life this side of eternity.  Join us Sunday morning as we worship our Savior and as Pastor Tim reminds us the importance of Christ alone.

And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.
-Apostle Peter
