Jesus Christ is the Creator. The Bible teaches that “by Him all things were created” (Colossians 1:16). Through Him God the Father made the universe, planet earth, and everything in them. He created all life, and lovingly designed man and woman to enjoy Him and reflect Him and find fulfillment in Him. But shortly after their creation the first humans rebelled, choosing to follow their own will over and against God’s; turning their back on their Creator. This willful rebellion permeates all humanity. Its consequence is separation from God: death, not only in the life to come, but also in this one.

But God loves rebels.

God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, a real person in history who came and lived among us in order to lay down his life to save people from the death-grip of sin. He did this by dying in our place, paying the penalty that each one of us justly deserves. "…and He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross" (1 Peter 2:24).

Jesus Christ is the savior of the world. He is the only chance people will ever have to be restored to their original design. He is the only way to find freedom and satisfaction in this life and eternal joy in the life to come. Come hear His word, and know Him, and join as we follow Him.
