What We Believe
Restoration has only been around for four years, but in that time, a clear vision has emerged that reflects who we are and shapes what we do: We long to see broken people being restored by grace and finding their place in God’s story.
We are all broken people. We experience that brokenness in many ways—through what we have done and what others have done to us, through choices we have made and circumstances far beyond our control. The details vary for each of us, but ultimately we have this in common: God created us to be in a relationship with him, and that relationship has been broken beyond our ability to fix it.
The good news is that God hasn’t left us in our brokenness. Jesus—God incarnate in human form—came for us. He lived, died, and rose again to restore our relationship with God, to heal all our brokenness. This was an act of love that was offered as pure gift—as grace. As we accept that grace and experience God’s restoration, we find that we are part of something much bigger than ourselves. God is committed to bringing restoration and wholeness to all things, and he invites us to join him in that work. We all have a place in God’s story.
Restoration’s place in that story is to be a church in North Arlington that connects people to God, to others, and to the needs of the world. We do this through vibrant corporate worship, through small groups, and through service in our community and around the world. We are convinced that the gospel—the good news of God’s grace offered in Christ—changes everything. And we’re passionate about seeing that change in our lives and the lives of others.
