Our Core Beliefs:
We believe that the Bible story is the story of peace and that peace is found in the person of Christ. We believe that the Gospel, “that Jesus gave himself for our sins that He might deliver us from this present evil age, according to the will of the Father” (Gal 1:4) is the fundamental truth that brings peace to all people. We believe that the source of peace is in being known by God and living daily under the leadership of the Holy Spirit.
On the waters of life there is often turmoil. Storms arise and threaten everything we hold dear. But peacetalk is committed to the idea that when the Spirit enters and drives the boat of our lives, we can find the still waters. The wind of the Spirit, is caught by the sails of our hearts and we can know peace in the middle of the worse storms of life.
