Our Faith in Jesus Christ

Why We Need Jesus

In the beginning, God created humans in His own image, placing them over the Earth as its keepers. But, ever since the fall of Adam and Eve, every one of us has been corrupted and made evil from birth. We have turned our backs on God, sinned against Him in all of our thoughts, words, and deeds, and we have not glorified Him as we ought. Since God is just, and since He has promised to punish every sin, we deserve His wrath, and eternal punishment in Hell.

Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life; whoever does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God remains on him (John 3:36).

Who Is Jesus?

Jesus Christ is the beloved, only-begotten Son of God. From all eternity He is God, and all things were created by Him. Yet, in time he took upon Himself a created body, and became a man. Therefore Jesus Christ continues forever to be both fully God and fully man.

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power (Hebrews 1:3).

What Jesus Did for Us

Because of His great love for us, Jesus came to the earth to save those who believe in Him.
      He came to release us from the power of sin, Satan, death, and the world.
      He came to die on the cross as a sacrifice for our sins.
      He came to suffer the wrath of God in our place.
      He came to live a perfect life, and to give it to us so that we can go to heaven.
      He came to transform us, so that we and grow in love and holiness.
      He came to teach us the truth about God and His law.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).
