The story of redemption is the story of a just and loving God calling lost and rebellious creatures back to Himself. He has been writing this grand and glorious narrative of His goodness and grace since before time began. We urge you to explore this story further.
In the beginning, God created this world good and peaceful and offered us the opportunity of unbroken fellowship with Himself – for His glory. However, as Genesis 3 tells us, things went wrong. Through one man’s disobedience, we fell from this joyful state of fellowship. Sin entered our hearts, and the world became twisted and fractured. The harmony and peace that creation once enjoyed were damaged by sin and broken in disrepair.
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. It was a dark and horrendous moment of suffering and death, yet peace, beauty and hope burst forth as Christ rose three days later from the grave. That which was broken God restored through his Son.
Through Christ, we are offered restoration and reconciliation. God takes what is broken and makes it new. He invites His children into relationship with Himself and into the newness of life found in Christ.
What God starts, He will bring to completion, and we pray that you would be woven into the narrative. If you feel Christ inviting you into this story – into restored relationship with Him – turn to Him in repentance. Put your trust in Him and the work He accomplished on the cross to redeem and save you. This is the gospel…the good news!
If you’d like to learn more about what God has done in Jesus, the Bible is a great place to start. Look into one of the four gospels: Matthew, Mark, Luke, or John. They will help you come to know Jesus better. You are also welcome to join us at SVCC for a Sunday worship gathering. Everything we do is about Jesus and designed to help us know him more and more.
