UPDATE on Donations to Support Matthew Topper
A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed! We have more than reached our $9,000 goal to support Matthew Topper as he recovers from kidney donation surgery in a few weeks. Through you, God has shown his ability to meet the needs of his children, and we give all praise to him for that. Please do continue in prayer for Topper and the recipient, Pastor Todd Murphy of Sacred Journey Church, on the operating tables and beyond. We believe in God's Providence, in more ways than one.
The heart of the good news is that Jesus Christ died, the righteous for the unrighteous, in order to bring us to God; and that he rose in triumph, bringing hope for us and for the world. We think the best place to learn about Jesus is in a church committed to loving him and loving its city. We hope to be that kind of church.
Who We Are
We meet for worship on Warren Avenue in East Providence, just off Exit 5 from Interstate 195. Join us and you’ll find:
1. A welcoming, loving community.
2. A commitment to studying, living, and teaching what the Bible says.
3. God-centered worship, including the singing of biblical Psalms, a tradition of song over three thousand years old.
4. A focus, whether in worship, teaching, or spending time together, on Jesus Christ — God’s son, who lived, died and rose from the dead for the sake of the world.
What does our name mean?
Our focus is Jesus Christ. He loves the world and died to save it, and we love Him and want to live lives that honor Him. His victory and grace are at the heart of our church.
Our starting point when studying the Bible is that God is sovereign—He's in charge, no contest. This God-centered way of thinking is called “Reformed theology.”
This means that the church is led not by a solo pastor, but by the pastor and elders (local leaders) together. The elders are aided in their work by officers called deacons, who have a special task of caring for physical needs.
A church is more than a social club: it is a body of people called by God to serve Him, love one another, and love the world. A church is a worshiping community, a place to serve others, a family.
