About Our Logo

LogoYou may have noticed the interesting Logo which adorns our pages.  Where did it come from?  What does it mean?

This symbol has been with us since the beginning in one form or another.  The original concept was designed by our first pastor in the 1990s.  It quickly became our symbol and depics some of the things we believe in.

The never-ending intertwined curls in the middle of the logo reflects the Trinity; Father, Son and Holy Spirit, together, intertwined and never-ending.

The outside ring contains the five "solas" of the reformation:

Sola Scriptura (By Scripture Alone) -  the teaching that the Bible is the only inspired and authoritative word of God, is the only source for Christian doctrine, and is accessible to all. The Bible requires no interpretation outside of itself.

Sola Gratia (By Grace Alone) - the teaching that salvation comes by God's grace or "unmerited favor" only — not as something merited by the sinner. This means that salvation is an unearned gift from God for Jesus' sake.

Sola Fide
(By Faith Alone) - the teaching that justification (interpreted in Protestant theology as, "being declared right by God", and assumed to mean exactly "salvation"), is received by faith only, without any mixture of or need for good works, though in classical Protestant theology, saving faith is always evidenced by good works.

Solus Christos (Christ Alone) - the teaching that Christ is the only mediator between God and man, and that there is salvation through no other.

Sola Deo Gloria (To God Alone be the Glory) - the teaching that all glory is to be due to God alone, since salvation is accomplished solely through His will and action — not only the gift of the all-sufficient atonement of Jesus on the cross but also the gift of faith in that atonement, created in the heart of the believer by the Holy Spirit.
