Who is Jesus?

We are very glad that you clicked on this link.  I hope this website has helped you learn a bit about us and our church family but the truth is, above all the things you might find here, we hope you find out who Jesus was, and is.

The man Jesus of Nazareth was, and is, many things.

He was a great preacher whose words, such as the Sermon on the Mount, still challenge men two thousand years later.

He was a healer who worked great miracles, healing the sick, bringing sight to the blind, making the lame to walk again, and even raising the dead.

He was a troublemaker whose criticisms of the powerful and wealthy were matched by his compassion for the weak, vulnerable, and outcasts of society.

He was crucified on a Roman cross, accused of treason against the Empire for being the "King of the Jews."   But this was no accident, because . . .

Jesus was sent by God to die on purpose as a substitute, a stand in, who would take away the sin of the world by taking upon himself the divine penalty of God's justice.

He is the one whom God raised from the dead after three days in the grave, and who now rules heaven and earth and is present with his people through his Spirit.

He is the one who will one day return, to bring both judgment and mercy.

He is the Christ, the Jewish Messiah: the one to whom dozens of prophecies in the Old Testament point, the fulfillment of all of God's promises to Israel.

He is the divine Son of God. He is fully man but he is also fully God.  For generations Christians have called him the one and only God-Man.

This man, Jesus Christ, God in human flesh, died for your sins and ours, in order that we might be saved from sin and judgment by believing in him. By his sacrifice, Jesus brings us, by God's design, into a supremely satisfying joy in God that is beyond anything we can imagine. That's good news. It's called the gospel message.

To aid you in your consideration of the gospel, we offer a link to a multimedia presentation of this message from Matthias Media entitled Two Ways to Live. It is our hope that this presentation answers your questions about God and His claim on your life.

Two Ways to Live

After viewing this presentation, if you have any questions, please feel free to call us.  We’d love to help you experience the joy of forgiveness and a personal relationship with God.
