Sanctuary is just that…a sanctuary. A place to be safe and rest in the grace and peace of Jesus. We are all messed up and broken people. None of us have it all together. But we’re ALL going after the ONE who does, the God of the second chance.
We believe in God, the Father almighty,
creator of heaven and earth.
We believe in Jesus Christ, his only Son, our Lord,
who was conceived by the Holy Spirit
and born of the virgin Mary.
He suffered under Pontius Pilate,
was crucified, died, and was buried;
he descended to hell.
The third day he rose again.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of God the Father almighty.
He will come to judge the living and the dead.
We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the holy church,
the communion of saints,
the forgiveness of sins,
the resurrection of the body,
and the life everlasting. Amen.

He has an enormous passion for music and has decided to use his gifts for the ministry of bringing people closer to Jesus.

God is doing and will continue to do amazing things at Sanctuary and I want to be a part of it.”
