Christmas message rings powerfully

January 1, 2020

WHO IS "THE REAL, THE TRUE, THE LIVING" JESUS?


People going to church this Christmas believe God is a powerful force for good in the world and he, or she, sometimes works in mysterious ways. Christians, whose faith is founded on the redemptive event of Christ’s crucifixion, can readily believe that good can grow from tragedy.

Who Is This Man Called Jesus?

December 22, 2019

WHO IS "THE REAL, THE TRUE, THE LIVING" JESUS?

Who is this Man called Jesus? People have been asking that question ever since He walked out of the carpenter shop about two thousand years ago. Jesus came to reveal to us who God is: a God who loved us enough to have His own Son crucified in order to pay our sin-debt in full. All the things that are true of Jesus are true of God–there is no one like Him!
