Latest Message: The Baptism of Christ

Pastor Bob Green - 1/9/2022

Why was Jesus Christ baptized? At first, it might be one of the most puzzling events of his life. Jesus Christ lived perfectly - entirely without sin - so why be baptized? Even John the Baptist wondered this: "I need to be baptized by you," he said, "and do you come to me?" Yet Jesus' baptism was necessary! It was proper! It was right! Not because he needed any forgiveness, but because we need such forgiveness! Understand, dear friend, that because Jesus was baptized, so can you and I be baptized and receive all the blessings of baptism that God has promised - forgiveness, life, and salvation!

Who's Ascension?

Who's Ascension?

Ascension is a small but growing church. We come in all shapes, sizes, ages, and backgrounds. We love and support one another as a family. And we're just like you: sinners in need of a Savior.

We come together every week to praise God for his gift of Jesus, to encourage each other, and to serve.

We'd love for you to be our guest at our next event or Sunday morning gathering!


Our Worship

Our Worship

Why do we worship? There are many reasons why Christians gather together in worship, but the most important is simply this: At worship, God serves us.

That might sound upside down, but it's the wonderful truth. In his Word, God comes to us with peace, forgiveness, and true life through Jesus Christ.

We'd love for you to be our guest Sunday morning. You can join in person at 8:00 am and 10:30 am. You can also join us online for the 10:30 service right here.
