Our mission:
Transformed by God to bring hope to others through Christ.
Transformed defined:
1. To change in composition or structure
2. To change the outward form or appearance of
3. To change in character or condition
There are two dimensions of transformation:
1. We believe God can and does act in an instant to transform us
2. We also believe that transformation is an ongoing process

Today's focus is going to be on the instantaneous transformation, the NOW.
Human beings were created for a purpose, a purpose far beyond just being good little boys and girls in God's garden.

N.T. Wright says, “Humans were made to be 'mage-bearers', to reflect the praises of creation back to the Creator and to reflect the Creator’s wise and loving stewardship into the world.
We believe that Jesus Christ's death and resurrection is the only hope of transformation that we have

Prevenient grace is drawing us towards repentance.

The Church of the Nazarene says, "Repentance is a sincere and thorough change of the mind with regard to sin, involving a sense of personal guilt and a voluntary turning away from sin."

1. We are justified, which means we are forgiven of our sins and declared not guilty before God. We are reconciled, brought back into relationship with him.

2. We are regenerated- this is the act of the Holy Spirit in our life when we are made spiritually alive.

3. We are adopted into the family of God. We have been transferred from relationship with the world to relationship with God.
