The gospel is the good news that tells us that though we are worse off than we think, we are also more loved than we ever dared hope!
The gospel clarifies what our lives already know - that there is something wrong with us and the world around us. It tells us that though we are more sinful and flawed than we ever imagined, we are also more loved and esteemed than we ever dared hope.
"For God so loved the world he gave His one and only Son, so that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life." - John 3:16
Through the person and work of Jesus Christ who is redeeming all things to Himself, sin and death and destruction and dysfunction don't have to have the last and ultimate word. Jesus does instead.
So we believe that while no one (including ourselves) is perfect, everyone is growing.
Our mission is to help all people grow in believing the gospel of Jesus Christ more deeply and apply it more widely because ultimately it's Jesus who changes everything!
Our lives and all of human history is the story of man substituting himself for God, loving and serving self above all else. On the cross, we discover God substituting His Son for us, loving and serving us, despite us.
Jesus Christ has lived the life we should have lived, and died the death we should have died. Now, He is raised from the dead and lives forever as Lord, and for those who trust in and believe in Him, also as Savior.
You won't find any perfect people at Christ Church Mansfield. Just a group of people brought together by a perfect Savior.
It's all about Jesus and what He has done for us.
Receiving the love and grace of God in Christ impacts our entire life. In Christ we are disciples, meaning we learn from Christ, belong to His community, work for His cause of making His blessings flow far as the curse is found in our lives, our homes, our cities, and striving to make disciples of Jesus and plant healthy churches throughout the world.
