Jesus was a Jewish carpenter who lived 2000 years ago in Israel.
And we believe He is the most important person to have ever lived.
THE PROBLEM: SIN
The Bible records the first man, Adam, sinning against God. His sin in that moment caused the entire world to be cursed with sin. It is for this reason that every man and woman born to this day is born cursed with a nature that wants to, and consistently chooses to rebel against God, their creator. This includes you. It is a power that we cannot control and one that we cannot get rid of on our own.
Because of this sin, you have gained an enourmous debt against God and unless someone more powerful intervenes to pay that debt and free you from that sin, the consequences will be great. Because of God's perfect justice, He cannot allow that sin to go unpunished, and the consequence is death: eternal separation from God and His sinless paradise, heaven.
THE SOLUTION: JESUS
Jesus came to the earth to solve that very problem. His life was lived with one purpose: to seek and save those who are lost. Through his death, He paid the penalty for the sins of every person, including you. He was then raised back to life to show that He had conquered that very consequence: death.
Jesus died and was ressurected to save you. This action can save you from the penalty of your past sins, the power of sin in your life right now, and in the future, it can save you from the presence of sin as you get to spend eternity in heaven with Jesus himself, your savior.
So what must you do to be saved?
"If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,‘ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9
Jesus offers this salvation as a free gift to anyone who believes that He truly did it for them. It's as simple as repenting of your sin, declaring that you believe He did what He did, and committing to following Him.
What you do with Jesus is the most important decision you will ever make. If you've made a decision to follow Christ, we hope you'll take one more step by sharing with someone. You can do so by clicking the button below.
