At the heart of the Christian faith is the person of Jesus Christ. We would love you to meet him because meeting Jesus changes everything!
The Bible describes that change like this:
“At one time you all had your backs turned to God, thinking rebellious thoughts of him, giving him trouble every chance you got. But now, by giving himself completely at the Cross, actually dying for you, Christ brought you over to God’s side and put your lives together, whole and holy in his presence.” Colossians 1:21-22 (MSG)
Christian’s believe that Jesus was sent by God to save us from our sin – the part of our lives that causes us to do wrong things. No matter how small or how great those wrong things are, sin causes death to grow in each and everyone of us, separating our lives from the full, abundant life that God had always planned for us. The problem is that sin comes with a penalty. That penalty is death and separation from God and there is nothing we can do about it.
For God, that was unacceptable.
So in order for sin to be dealt with, God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to become human and without sin in order to be a perfect sacrifice and pay the penalty. By dying in our place on the cross, Jesus paid the price for all our sins on our behalf. Furthermore, through defeating death and rising again, he made it possible for everyone to be restored into a full, personal relationship with our Heavenly Father.
That ‘salvation’ is available for every person who invites Jesus Christ into their life and accepts him as their Saviour. Choosing to follow Jesus is not about abiding by a set of rules and regulations, or becoming ‘religious’. Choosing to follow Jesus is about entering into a full and life-changing relationship with the God who created you.
Our locations are full of people who have amazing testimonies of encountering Jesus and the difference he has made in their lives. We hope you will join them in the greatest adventure you could set out on.
