The Gathering @ Surf City is a diverse fellowship of believers committed to serving God and His Kingdoms purpose in this age. At The Gathering we believe that abundant life begins when we realize how much God, the Creator of the universe, loves us and desires an intimate relationship with us. We believe the Bible. It is the Word of God, recorded by man through God's inspiration. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He died for our sins, rose from the dead and will return again, as predicted, to claim each of us who have a personal relationship with Him. We believe that we can have forgiveness of our imperfection, called sin, and eternal life by personally acknowledging Jesus as our Lord and Forgiver. We believe the Bible provides Gods counsel to lead lives of fulfillment and integrity. It gives guidance for dating, marriage, family and business. It gives us hope and instruction on how to live a life of joy and purpose. It is our prayer that you will gather and worship.
