Who is Jesus?
He Was Resurrected From The Dead:
Without the resurrection there is no faith, Christianity, or any hope for the future. He rose from the dead, appeared to eyewitnesses, and is still at work today through the Holy Spirit. His resurrection isn’t just about our future, but the importance of our present life.
He Saved Us By Grace:
We are not saved by our good deeds, nor do we have the ability to earn our way into Heaven. We are saved by the gracious act of God sending his son, Jesus to die on a cross, resurrect from the dead, and establish His power and victory over sin.
He Is Part of the Triune God:
He was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, worked miracles and gave us an example to follow. He was (and is) fully God and was fully man, and now sits at the right hand of the Father to intercede for us.
He Told Us to Love:
Love isn’t simply an emotion, it’s an action. All of us want to belong, feel accepted, and significant. If we truly understand the love and grace of Jesus, we will love ALL people and show them that there is no greater acceptance, sense of belonging, and significance than through the love of Jesus.
He Told Us to Go:
Faith in Jesus isn’t just a personal, private emotion or feeling. It is a transforming life change that should force us to share that faith with others. If the message of Jesus is true then our lives should outwardly show it to everyone who crosses our path in the Low Country and around the world.
