At Sandals, we're all about being real with ourselves, God and others. We believe that the beginning of being real is to start seeing ourselves as Jesus sees us. The truth is that God made us in his image, loves us deeply and has a purpose for our lives.

We teach that it's okay to not be okay. Being real with others begins with understanding that we should not hide our hurts and our struggles. The Bible tells us to confess our sins and shortcomings to one another because in doing so we will have healing and power. Christ-centered community offers you strength in numbers, healing and encouragement to follow Jesus more fully.
