ever wonder








Christ likeEver wonder... What else is there to life
Why am I here?

How can I make sense of my life?
How can I find true purpose?
Where can I find answers to life's deepest questions?
We've all asked such questions.
Now find all the answers in one place...


Real Love... Jesus
There is One who loves you and wants you to enjoy a personal relationship with Him. He is the answer you've been looking for.
He loves you with an everlasting, unconditional love. You will never find true satisfaction, purpose or meaning without Him.

How Do We Know This?
God is also the author of the most important book ever written. In it, He says:

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that whoever believes in Him would not perish, but have everlasting
life..." - John 3:16

The Problem... Separation
Being at peace with God is not automatic, because by nature we are separated from Him. This separation is at the root of our selfishness, loneliness, and feelings of meaninglessness. This nature is automatic. We all suffer from the same problem... sin.

Seperation from GodHow Do We Know This?
" There is no one who is righteous, not even one..." - Romans 3:10

"For all have sinned and fallen short of God's glorious standard..." - Romans 3:23

Because God is holy and just, He cannot allow sin to go unpunished. Just like there is a penalty for breaking man's laws, there is a penalty for breaking God's. That penalty is death.
" The wages (penalty) for sin is death..." - Romans 6:23

God's Remedy... The Cross
Because God loves us, He does not want us to remain separated from Him. But because we are all sinners, we cannot pay for our own sin.
It takes a perfect sacrifice to please God and we aren't perfect. Religion, good deeds, even baptism cannot pay for our sin.

So God paid for our sins Himself. God came to earth as a man, Jesus. He came to suffer the punishment that you and I deserve.

Three days after dying on the cross, Jesus rose from the dead.


Jesus died on the Cross How Do We Know This?
"For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors, and the ransom He paid was not mere gold or silver. He paid for you with the precious lifeblood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God..." - 1 Peter 1:18-19

"He was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace. He was whipped,
and we were healed!
All of us have strayed away like sheep. We have left God's paths to follow our own. Yet the Lord laid on him the guilt and sins of us all..." -Isaiah 53:5-6
