YOU are part of a BIGGER STORY – The Story of God!
We are more than individuals or animals spinning around the universe on a rock lost in space where we make our own destinies, memories, and stories. We belong to God! We believe in a bigger story told in the BIBLE: God made us, God loves us, and God has a plan for our lives: a loving, intimate, personal friendship with God in Jesus Christ in loving friendship with the Church!
The BIBLE teaches us the whole story of God – from the BEGINNING (Creation) to the END (God’s kingdom in Heaven and Eart). The story is simple:
- God made us! (The Creation)
- We rebelled and tried to ruin God’s plan. (The Fall)
- God promises to restore and repair creation by sending a Messiah (a savior, a rescuer, a helper, a friend).
- We tried to fix God’s world by restoring our relationship with God through religion, good works, politics, and human effort, but we failed. (human history).
- God came to do what we could not do – rescue, recover and restore humanity – by coming in Jesus Christ (God’s son).
- We rebelled and rejected God’s messiah and son by killing him on the cross of Calvary. (Passion story)
- God raised Jesus Christ from the dead and forgives everyone who is willing to receive love in truth and faith (the Resurrection).
- God invites all people who want forgiveness, acceptance, and love to join God and God’s people (the Church).
- Jesus Christ promises to return one day to fully restore God’s creation to perfection in the end (the Escaton).
- God’s people will live forever with God in a world of perfection and love (Heaven on earth).
