GOING ALL IN WITH JESUS
LIFE BEGINS WITH JESUS...
- Until you have been saved by Jesus, you’re the walking dead. Trapped in your sins. Spiritually unconscious. Separated from God. Salvation is God’s rescue operation for his good creation.
- Jesus came to earth, died on a cross, and was raised to life to rescue you from sin, make you alive, and bring you into eternal relationship with God! Salvation is not only a matter of life after death, but also the way to live an abundant life on earth with Jesus, here and now.
- Simply put, Jesus is salvation, and salvation is life (1 John 5:12). That’s why CCC celebrates the empty tomb. When you are saved, the same power that raised Jesus from the dead is in you!
FOLLOWING JESUS DOESN'T HAVE TO BE COMPLICATED...
- Depending on your family background or religious tradition, you may have heard a variety of ideas about what it means to follow Jesus.
- Perhaps you think following Jesus happens when you walk an aisle, pray a prayer, and get baptized. Maybe you believe following Jesus is only for certain people, or that it is something you just have to believe in your heart.
