Where Faith and Practice Collide
At SJA, God comes first.
We believe that God loves every human being - that He meticulously crafts every life, and oversees with interest, every life story. At SJA, we love stories - especially ones with amazing heroes. We believe that Jesus is the hero of the story of creation. We love the story of God's intercession in history. We love the story of God stepping into our world as a man, living a perfect life, and sacrificing Himself as a means of payment for the sin of man. We love the stories that we hear of God stepping into people's lives, saving them from sin and death, and giving them life.
WE ARE FANS OF GOD
- We are lovers of God.
- We are intensely interested in the way God moves and draws us to one another.
- We are the church, not a church.
WE ARE NOT A BUILDING
Our buildings are gifts from God, but they do not define who we are. We are defined by what God says we are. Our buildings, our resources, our time are useless without a focus on God. We love the gifts that we've been given, and we love to present our best for Him and His people.
