About Church of the Ascension
Christian faith and practice is personal and corporate. The Gospel is really good news! Evangelical means "good news." Trusting in Jesus as Savior and walking with Him as Lord is a personal call to each Christian, and for the whole Church.
Dynamic spiritual empowerment comes from the Holy Spirit as He indwells the Church like life-giving wind, purifying fire, and boldness to share the Gospel. The Spirit helps us pray when we do not know how to pray. The Spirit comforts us in our grief. The Spirit inspires us to hope more deeply in the Promises of God in Christ Jesus.
The Sacraments are the effective means of grace, giving assurance to the Church of God's promises. The Church has 2 Gospel Sacraments, Baptism and Eucharist, and 5 other commonly called Sacraments, Absolution, Marriage, Ordination, Anointing, and Confirmation.
