Jesus Christ is the only hope for your life, for our community... and for our world. 

What do we mean by that? Jesus loves even the most unlovable, performs the impossible, takes what is dead and broken and then brings it to life. He pierces the hardest of hearts, He forgives the unforgivable, He embraces the outcasts and calls them friends, He brings function to the dysfunctional, He transforms His followers from the inside-out, and He fills what was meaningless with purpose.

Imagine that in your life... Imagine that in our community... Imagine that in our world!


How does Jesus do these things?


Our Problem...

As we understand the Bible, all human beings have a big problem; it’s called sin. And sin isn’t just something we do. It’s something that lives inside of us that corrupts us from the inside out. An even bigger problem is that we can’t do anything on our own to overcome that sin. Our noblest efforts and all of our “being good” doesn't cancel out any of that sin. The biggest problem is that God is holy and just, and He always punishes sin. Because of our sin, God has every right to condemn us, cast us away from His presence, and consign us to eternal punishment. That's a big problem!

God's Solution...

BUT, while we can’t do anything about our sin, God did something about it Himself. The good news (gospel) is that God loved you so much that He, Jesus Christ, came and willingly took your punishment for sin by dying on a cross. His death offers us forgiveness for our sin. But that’s not the end of the story. Jesus came back to life and promises that same life -- A NEW LIFE -- for all who give their lives to Him. God’s solution to our sin is the greatest news of all!

Why God Did This...

Ultimately, though you are far from God and lost in sin, He uniquely created you, He loves you despite your sin, and He solved the problem of sin for you. That’s why He did what He did in Christ!

Your Response...

How will you respond to this great news? The only way that leads to hope is to agree with God that you stand condemned as a sinner, to recognize God’s marvelous gift of love to you in Jesus’ death and resurrection, to turn your back on your sin, and in faith to surrender to Jesus as the ultimate authority in your life. How do you do this? Some have found the following prayer to be very helpful...


Dear Lord Jesus, I know that I am a sinner and that my sin condemns me and eternally separates me from you. I humbly ask for Your forgiveness. I believe You died to forgive me of my sin and that You rose from the dead to give me a new life. I turn from my sins and give my life totally to You. From this moment forward, I trust and follow You as my Lord and Savior. In Your Name. Amen.

Now, remember, these words do not save us just because we say them. We must mean them in our hearts. If you prayed this prayer sincerely, you belong to Him, and all of His blessings are now yours! That's great news, and you're now ready to begin your new life in Christ by reading and studying your Bible, following Him in believer's baptism, connecting with a local fellowship of believers, and growing in your new life Christ through discipleship and service!
