'God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life' (John 3:16)
Our faith starts with this. We are not here by accident!
God is the creator of everything and he made us to live in his world and to know him. But though God is good in every way, we have chosen to act as if we know better than him. Because we have disobeyed him, we should rightly face his judgement when we die.
But God loves us and sent Jesus, who was both God and man, to live the perfect life and die an undeserved death in our place, so that all the things we've ever done wrong can be forgiven.
Faith in Jesus restores our broken relationship with God. He is transforming us into people who are becoming
more and more like Jesus in the way we live. This new life will continue even beyond death!
