We believe that God created the world and everything in it, including you, and He wants to begin a personal, one-on-one relationship with you today.
IT STARTS WITH JESUS
Everyone has an opinion about Jesus. Maybe you think he’s a great teacher or a prophet. Maybe you think he didn’t exist at all. Whatever you believe, we can probably agree that Jesus changed things. He changed history. We believe He wants to change you, too. Jesus said to him,
“I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also." JOHN 14:6-7
Jesus claimed He knew God. No big deal, right? Plenty of people make the same claim. But Jesus also said He was God. And this upset the religious leaders of his day so much that they killed Him. But that was 2,000 years ago. Why does it matter to you now? How does Jesus’ life and death affect your life? Does all of this really make any difference in our world today?
God is the creator of the universe. But he’s far more personal than you may know. He has a purpose for you and your life. He loves you and created you to enjoy the fullness of a personal relationship with him. The good news is that you don’t have to meet some confusing or impossible religious standard to know Him. You just have to take a few simple steps.
"If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." ROMANS 10:9
You don't have to be perfect. Through his death on the cross, and his resurrection, Jesus took all of your wrong and gave you all of His right. If you believe that and commit to following him, your life will never be the same. He asks you to acknowledge your sin, accept his forgiveness, declare that you want to follow Jesus, and believe he is who he says He is.
Believing in Jesus is the first step on the most important journey of your life. You haven’t finished the race—you’ve just started. The best is yet to come!
