THE WORD

“Christ is the visible image of the invisible God. He existed before anything was created and is supreme over all creation,”Colossians 1:15

See God’s heart.

  • John 14:6 “Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one can come to the Father except through me.”
  • John 17:3 “And this is the way to have eternal life—to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, the one you sent to earth.”

Know it for yourself.

  • 2 Corinthians 5:17 “This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!”
  • 2 Corinthians 5:21 “For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ.”

Live it out.

  • 1 John 5:10-12 “All who believe in the Son of God know in their hearts that this testimony is true. Those who don’t believe this are actually calling God a liar because they don’t believe what God has testified about his Son. And this is what God has testified: He has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life.”
  • Acts 10:38 “And you know that God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power. Then Jesus went around doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with him.”

 

PRINCIPLE TEACHING

Jesus is the ultimate liberation movement. He has come to take away the sins of humanity. He took our sin and place on the cross, where He bled and died on behalf of us. Not only did He die on the cross but He rose from the dead 3 days later. We don’t put our faith in a dead God. We put our faith in a God that is alive! Jesus IS the son of God. He IS the one that was spoken of through prophets of the old testament. There is no other way to the Father, Jesus IS the way, the truth and the life. To know Jesus, is to know God. To follow Jesus is more than just following someone like you do on social media. It’s allowing Him to be Lord of your life! Jesus came to restore us into a reconciled relationship with God.

He took sin from us through the shedding of His blood, so that we might become the righteousness in Him. In Christ, we have become a new creation. You were created in the image of God, Jesus Christ. In Him is true life.
