Who is Jesus?
You may be wondering, “who is Jesus anyway, and how can a man who lived over 2000 years ago have anything to do with my life?” Well, in short, here is what we believe about Jesus:
Jesus is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father and the Holy Spirit. Jesus was sent by God in the form of a man to fulfill his plan to save us from death. He lived a sinless human life and offered himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all people by dying on a cross. He arose from the dead after three days to demonstrate his power over sin and death. He ascended to heaven and will return again someday to earth to reign as King. He is the only way to Father God and the only way of salvation.
Our mission is to point people to Jesus and encourage them as they become fully devoted followers of him.
Beginning a relationship with Jesus
Make Way for New Beginnings
When we have a real relationship with God through Jesus, life gets exciting! Easy? No. Purposeful? Yes! We call this salvation. Just like any new beginning, there are some obvious distinction from the old. So what is it we are saved from? Starting a relationship with Jesus begins with you acknowledging you’re a sinner, recognizing that you cannot save yourself, knowing Jesus can and asking him to do so. The best news is that your sins have already been paid for, by him!
The Bible is God’s written message to all people and we use it to better understand who He is and make Him number one in our lives. If you don’t yet have a Bible, let us know and we will be happy to provide you with one. Surrounding yourself with fellow believers as God can use them to help guide you which will be an amazing support along the way. Joining a Life Group is the best way to get connected with others on the Jesus following journey. With the Holy Spirit living inside you, you are living a new life with a new nature that draws you away from sin and to Jesus – it is a journey. If you’re ready to begin, or you need help along the way, contact us.
