Know Jesus

 

Begin your faith journey.

The world is seeking meaning, hope and a place to belong. We believe that there is one hope for this life and the life to come through the saving grace of Jesus. The best way to know Jesus is through God’s word, the Bible. The word of God shows us our fractured relationship with a holy God and that, through Jesus, that relationship can be restored. Our hope and prayer, for you is to know the transforming power of Jesus and His love for you. 

"Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us." 1John 4:10

 

God’s Design

We see the beauty, purpose, and evidence of God’s love for us in the design around us.

The Bible tells us that God originally planned a world that worked perfectly—where everything and everyone fit together in harmony.

God made each of us with a purpose—to worship Him and walk with Him.

“God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.” Genisis 1:3

 

Sin

Life doesn’t work when we ignore God, sin separates us from Holy God and His original design for our lives.

When we selfishly insist on doing things our own way. The Word of God calls this sin. We all sin and distort the original design.

The consequence of our sin is separation from God—in this life and for all eternity.

“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23

 

Brokenness

Sin leads to a place of brokenness and despair. We see this all around us and in our own lives as well.

When we realize life is not working, we begin to look for an answer and a way out. We tend to go in many directions trying different things to figure it out on our own.

Brokenness leads to a place of realizing a need for something greater. God.

“They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and worshiped and served something created instead of the Creator." Romans 1:25

 

Gospel

At this point, we need a remedy—some good news.

Because of His love, God never intended for us to broken, and has not left us in our brokenness. God has given us a choice. Jesus, God in human flesh, came to us and lived perfectly according to God’s design. The design that was meant for us.

Jesus came to our rescue—to do for us what we could not do for ourselves. He took our sin and shame to the cross, paying the penalty of our sin by His death. Jesus provided the only way for us to be rescued and restored to have a relationship with God. Jesus was then raised from the dead in three days, conquering death forever.

“For God loved the world in this way: He gave His One and only Son.” John 3:16

 

Repent & Believe

Simply hearing this Good News is not enough.

We must admit our sinful brokenness (repent), stop trusting in ourselves and admit to God that we are sinners. We don’t have the power to escape this brokenness on our own. We need to be rescued.

We must ask God to forgive us—turning from sin to trust only in Jesus. This is what it means to repent (confess of sins and ask for forgiveness.) and believe.

Believing that Jesus is God's only son and accepting God's forgiveness from sin. We receive a new life through Jesus and God turns our lives in a new direction. We become one with God.

“Repent and believe in the good news.” Mark 1:15

 

Recover & Pursue

When God restores our relationship to Him, we begin to discover meaning and purpose. Now we can pursue God’s design in all areas of our lives.

Even when we fall, we understand God’s pathway to be restored.

God’s Spirit empowers us to pursue His design and assures us of His presence in this life and for all eternity.

“For it is God who is working in you, enabling you both to desire and to work out His good purpose.” Philippians 2:13
