The good life is found in a person, not in activities or some sort of moral code. We believe there’s one true story of the world and it’s all about Jesus.
In fact, the story the Bible tells points to Jesus as the hero of that story. Life, the kind of life we dream about at the very core of who we are is possible only because of Jesus.
Jesus is God Himself, who came to earth to fully reveal who God truly is and restore the relationship between God and humans. Throughout His time on earth, Jesus demonstrated the perfect way to live – full of humility, love, and commitment to God and His ways. Jesus’ earthly life seemingly ended when He was killed by both religious leaders and the Roman state.
However, Jesus overcame earthly powers and death itself by coming to life again and setting into motion the community now called the Church. That’s good news. We receive God’s grace because of who Jesus is and what He has done for us. Jesus invites each of us to follow His ways, experience new life, and share in His victory over sin and death. He invites us into His story.
The good life is in Jesus and we learn to follow and worship Him by taking our next step.
Let’s start a conversation about Jesus.

WHO IS JESUS?
Who is Jesus?
1 Peter 2:22-25
“He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth.” 23 When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly. 24 “He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 25 For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

Acts 2: 42-47
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
The new life that Jesus offers is not only eternal life in the future. It is here and now! Jesus invites us to experience the best life possible. The life we were created for. How do we discover and live out this new life?
- Scripture: To find our place in the story of God we must first become familiar with the story we’ve become part of. In the Bible we find stories, letters, poems, and prophesies that reveal the incredible story of God and His relationship with humanity.
- Prayer: Every healthy relationship needs good communication. This includes our relationship with God. It is in prayer that we share our thoughts, concerns, and praises with God and give God space to speak to us as well.
- Community: The Christian life is meant to be lived with others. It is by living life together that we learn, grow, and live out Jesus’ call to love and serve one another
