About Us

OUR NAME

Our Name

Veritas is Latin for truth. We are a church that believes in truth. We believe it is objective and can be known, and that what you believe about truth really matters for your life. Being a church that believes in truth means at least two things:

  • First, it means that truth is found in knowing and following Jesus. In John 18, Jesus is having a conversation with Pilate about why the Jewish leaders want to crucify him. Pilate asks Jesus whether he is a king, and then Jesus responds, "You say that I am a king. For this purpose I was born and for this purpose I have come into the world - to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice."
  • Second, it means is that truth is discovered most responsibly in community, and not in isolation. We need other people in our lives to encourage us, correct us, and struggle with us as we wrestle with lifes hardest questions. Proverbs 27:17 says that iron sharpens iron, and so we ought to sharpen one another in our beliefs and in our character.
