God’s rescuing work through the life, death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
Everything in between is the story of God sending His son, Jesus, to come and restore us back to the life He created us for. This story of restoration is about the living God. For His glory, God created this world good and peaceful and offered us the opportunity of unbroken fellowship with Himself. However, as Genesis 3 tells us, things went wrong. Through one man’s disobedience, we fell from this incredible state of fellowship. Sin entered our hearts, and with that sin, the world became twisted and fractured.
The harmony and peace that creation once enjoyed was now damaged and broken by sin. Since that time, God has patiently and purposefully continued the story of redemption. God sent His only Son, Jesus, who came and lived a perfect, sinless life and offered Himself as a sacrifice for our sin on the cross. Jesus endured God’s wrath on behalf of sin. In a dark and horrendous moment of suffering and death, peace and beauty and hope burst forth as Christ rose three days later from the grave. What was once broken, God restored through His Son. Through Christ we have been offered restoration and reconciliation. God takes that which is broken and makes it new. God’s offer to us is a new life, the life we were created for. We urge you to explore this story further, and we pray that you to might be woven into this incredible narrative of restoration.

Where do I go from here?
If you feel Christ inviting you into this story — inviting you into a restored relationship with the living God — turn to Him in repentance and put your faith and trust in Him and the work He accomplished on the cross to redeem you and save you.
