Get To Know Jesus

Follow Me

Who is Jesus? Jesus is our…your…access to God. In the words of Jesus himself,

“I have come that you might have life, and have it more abundantly.” John 10:10

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6

“He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.” Mark 16:16

Jesus is God’s son, sent by God to die in our place for our sins that we may be allowed forgiveness and entrance into heaven. See John 3:16

Getting To Know Jesus

What does it mean to be Christian…to follow the teachings of Jesus Christ. How do we know what Jesus taught? There is only one way we could possibly know 2000 years after He walked the earth. We can only know what Jesus would have us to do by reading the words written by those who walked with Him, compiled into what we call today, the Bible.

If you are new to the Bible, start at the New Testament in the back half of the Bible. The chapter of Mark is a good starting point. Follow with John, Luke, and Matthew. While many translations exist of our Bible, most convey the same meaning. Try to get a version to start with that you can understand, but one that does not paraphrase so much that it distorts the message.

We offer many adult Bible studies at various times during the week, along with Sunday mornings. Bible study groups are a great way to gain insight into the meaning of the Bible, while enjoying the company of other believers. See our Grow In Christ section for further information.
