Jesus is the Son of God, whose perfect example as a man shows us how to live our lives today.
Jesus was born in a small rural town roughly 2000 years ago and lived a relatively quiet life until the age of 30 when He began His public ministry. Over the next three years He preached the gospel, performed miracles and through this combination of words and works, He showed Himself as God on the Earth.
Jesus came into the world on a mission; to make God known, to bring in God’s Kingdom and to accomplish God’s salvation. He did this through His life of perfect obedience to His Father, His sacrificial death in the place of sinful men and women, and His victorious resurrection from the dead. Jesus is, therefore, the saviour of all who put their faith in Him.
This is the good news for a broken world. Jesus has dealt with God’s anger at sin and reconciled us to Himself. He has cleansed us of our guilt and shame, opened the way to eternal life and He has given us His Holy Spirit to enable us to live for Him. This is the message that the church has been charged to proclaim through every generation until Jesus returns. In that day all things will be made new, to the praise of His glorious name.
The Bible says, “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)
Receiving God’s salvation is as easy as that because the hard work was done by Jesus himself. The gift is free to us but was costly to Jesus. To receive this gift, you could simply pray:
“Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. I believe that you died for the wrong I’ve done against others and against you as the creator. I accept your love and grace for me and ask that you would be the Lord of my life.”
The next step is to let us know you’ve invited Jesus into your life. We would love to help you know Jesus more and walk alongside you at the start of this incredible adventure. So go ahead now and let us know, and we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.
