Who is Jesus?

Learn more about Jesus

If you have made a decision to follow Jesus, we want to come alongside you to help start this journey. If you want to learn more about following Jesus and what that means, this is a great place to start!

God Loves You

Here's some great news: God made you and he loves you. His love is unending and unconditional. God is real and he wants you to personally experience his love, and discover the purpose of your life through a relationship with him. 

The Problem of Sin

People look everywhere for meaning and fulfillment, but they have the heart problem of sin. Sin damages your relationships with other people and with God. Everyone has sinned, and there are consequences because of our sin. Much like a modern-day courtroom, everyone who breaks the law must pay a penalty. The result  – or the penalty -  is eternal separation from God and the life he planned for you. 

The Good News of Jesus

There is good news: sin doesn’t stop God from loving you! Because of his great love for you God became a human being in Jesus Christ and gave his life for you. At the cross Jesus took your place and paid the penalty of death you deserved for your sins. Jesus died but he rose to life again. Jesus offers you peace with God and a personal relationship with him. Through faith in Jesus you can experience God’s love, discover your purpose, and have eternal life after death.

  • If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes and is justified, and with the mouth one confesses and is saved. (Romans 10:9–10)
  • For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast. (Ephesians 2:8,9)

Will you trust Jesus?

God has already done everything to show you how much he loves you by sending Jesus into the world to rescue you from sin. Through a relationship with Jesus Christ he offers you fulfillment and eternal life. Will you trust Jesus?

Following Jesus

Where do I start?
Start with a prayer! Praying is simply a conversation with God. If you haven't prayed before, one way to help you begin the conversation is to follow the ABCs of prayer:

Acknowledge that you're a sinner
Believe that Jesus paid for your sin on the cross
Confess that Jesus is the Son of God and commit your life to him. 
What does it mean?
What does it mean to acknowledge, believe and confess? It means that you have made a personal decision to believe the Gospel message that God sent his only Son Jesus to pay the penalty for your sin in order to forgive you and give you eternal life.  It means that God has taken away your sin and you have now become a child of God. 
What comes next?
If you have made a decision to follow Jesus, let us know! We'd love to pray for you and help you with following Jesus in the everyday moments of life. Once you’ve made the decision to follow Jesus, there are many ways to begin to nurture your faith. We believe your first next step after accepting Jesus is to get baptised. Baptism is the outward expression of the inward commitment you made when accepting Jesus into your heart.
