The only thing that counts
is faith expressing itself through love!



 Life is a challenging balancing act. Perhaps the greatest challenge in life is to stop acting like we are balanced, to stop acting like we have life figured out. This is one of our sincerest values as a church, we don’t want to act or pretend like we’re perfect, like we have life figured out. Life has a way of throwing each and everyone of us off balance. What we, as a community of faith, desire is to be a safe place for everyone to get their bearings, to regain balance in life through a deeper relationship with Jesus and with one another. All the while, knowing that we will continuously be in need of Jesus and one another to help us maintain our balance in life. 

There are all kinds of people whose journeys have taken them down all sorts of paths in life. Here at the Bluffs church, what we find miraculous is that all of our paths have come together through our faith in Jesus and now we are on a new and eternal journey with one another. We all have stories that are specific and unique to our life but we can relate to each other because we all have experienced a similar situation. And God wants us to use our uniqueness and our similarities to build his kingdom by loving one another through all that we have experienced and all that we will experience.

Come, let’s discover the way together!

Let’s discover the way to live an abundant life, the way to express our faith through love that will bring true spiritual balance. A life filled with more joy, more peace, more patience, more kindness, more goodness, more faithfulness, more, more gentleness, and more self-control. We look forward to being on the journey with you, we need you and other believers like you to weave your path with ours in order to build God’s beautiful kingdom in this fallen, imbalanced, sinful world. But we know that there is much more to life!



Begin Again is an aspect of learning
and experiencing that there is
more to life!and that there is more to church, and more to Bible class as well. All of us at the Bluffs church,
but especially our servant-leaders, desire to ensure that we are all growing in our relationship with God together, and that our life has meaning and purpose as we build the kingdom of God together. These courses also help maintain the unity
of the church spiritually and practically. This is why our church and our servant-leaders highly recommend that every new member goes through at least the first four courses of the Begin Again series.
