To delight in God’s love and share it with others

Open Bible

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

Perhaps you are wondering what Christianity is all about. Well here's a brief summary:

God is the loving ruler of the world and he made us to live in a special relationship with him. Everyone has rebelled against God our creator and has tried, and failed, to run their lives, and our world, by themselves. If we continue in our rebellion against God, he will exclude us from relationship with him now and forever. Because of his love for us, God the Father sent Jesus, God the Son into the world so that we do not have to suffer the consequences of our rebellion. Jesus, God the Son, died on the cross and was cut off from God the Father in our place. He rose from the dead to show that he had paid the full penalty for our rebellion.

As a result of Jesus' death, God offers us a new start in our relationship with him. We can continue to reject him, OR, we can let God into our lives by receiving his Holy Spirit. This leads to forgiveness of all our sins and a new start in our relationship with God as our Father.
