There is a God. He absolutely loves you.
God understands all this stuff going on in the human heart and about two thousand years ago He sent His Son, Jesus to reveal what God is really like and become the payment for a debt none of us could ever repay, no matter how good or consistent we thought we could be. Many people thought God was an evil task-master – someone you could never please; or someone who was distant and didn’t really care. Nothing could be further from the truth.
It doesn’t end there… God wanted you and I to experience the community He initiated with Jesus and the Holy Spirit. He called it “church” – a community of faith devoted to following, believing, obeying Him and growing together. Church is about being together, about going through life and this journey together. God made it clear that you and I weren’t meant to do life on our own – He provides a relationship with Him and each other that gives us the support and encouragement to walk through this life.
