Why Jesus Matters

Big questions in life

What does it mean to be a Christian? Who is Jesus? How will you respond to the message of “good news” from Jesus? These are the most important questions we must answer in life!

You aren’t a Christian because your parents were. Your family doesn’t save you; Jesus does. You’re also not a Christian just because you go to church. Your good actions and your church aren’t your savior. Jesus is.

What Jesus has done

The true story of Jesus has forever shaped human history: God’s kingdom has arrived in Jesus, and through Jesus the whole world would be redeemed, and we have the opportunity to be united with God. The Gospel is about what God has done for you through Jesus. All of us must make a decision about this good news; no one is off the hook. We can either believe it or reject it.

A follower of Jesus is someone who has recognized that we’re broken and sinful people and realized that life isn’t working—a follower of Jesus has decided to confess and believe that they desperately need God, and that they’re ready to trust and fully follow Jesus.
