Who Is Jesus?
Jesus replied, “I am the bread of life.  Whoever comes to me will never be hungry again.  Whoever believes in me will never be thirsty.” John 6:35

We all desire to be completely satisfied.  However, we as humans can never be completely satisfied by our own efforts.  No matter what we try, we will still have emptiness deep in our souls.

God created us, but we have turned our backs on God; sin.  We cannot bridge the gap between us and God on our own.  Jesus is God’s son who lived a perfect life so that He could take away our sin, and bridge the gap between us and God! Through Jesus we now are re-united with God. 

Jesus is the living water! Through faith in Him we will never thirst, we are made whole through Jesus.

We no longer need to thirst; Christ fills the void so we will never thirst again. 

 

However, we still live in a fallen world.  When we get to heaven that is when our Thirst will be completely quenched perfectly.  Through faith in Jesus, we are guaranteed eternal life with Him in Heaven.

 

God loves us so much that he would send His only Son Jesus, to take our sins away by dying on a cross.  But Jesus didn’t stay dead! He rose from the dead after 3 days so that through Him we may also raise.  Through faith in Jesus Christ we can live with God in heaven forever.

How do I begin to have a relationship with God, to have faith in Jesus Christ? 
Like any other friendship you begin by talking.  God is always there – no busy signals, no answering machines – just start talking.  He is listening.  Talking to God is called prayer.  When people pray some bow their heads and fold their hands to prevent distractions, others write it out, some enjoy talking to God while driving as if He were in the passenger seat, whatever is comfortable for you, it doesn’t matter, just start talking.

How does God speak to us?
God speaks to us directly through His written word; the Bible.  If you do not have a copy of the bible, please click here , include your name and mailing address and we will send you a free New Testament (this is the second half of the Bible that talks about Jesus) that is written in contemporary English so it is easier to read and understand. 

 

                                                                             

While reading God’s word on our own is great, it is also good for us to gather with other believers.  When God created us, He did not want us to be alone.  We gather with other Christians to study the Bible together, Pray together, Praise God together, and Serve God together.  We have small groups designed as safe places for people to come and ask questions.  Saturday and Sunday worship services are times to gather as a community, worship God, and learn more about Him.
