God is mystery. God is beyond all we can think, for God is infinite. As one seeks to describe God, our words seem inadequate, capable of only hinting at a reality other than anything we know or have experienced.
Yet, God is knowable. God has made the reality of His presence known through creation, the Bible and, most powerfully, through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. God is not only knowable but wants us to know Him.
We at Scripps-Mesa Bible Church want to introduce you to the mystery that is God. We do not pretend to be able to adequately describe Him for He defies description. Rather, our desire is to bring you into the presence of God and leave you there so you can discover Him for yourself. Then, once you discover God, we would like to be a part of helping you grow in your relationship with Him.
Pastor Bill recently gave a sermon on the place of prayer in our lives. Starting our day with prayer puts us in touch with God and gives us strength to deal with daily challenges. Paralyzing fear results when we try to handle everything alone. Prayer is a way to point us to all good things. Check out Luke18:1-8.
Bring your family back to church this summer and come just as you are, sunburn and all, to Northstar! Our goal is to help each person in our community grow in their relationship with God. No pressure from us. We just want to help serve you and your family in any way we can.
