You will hear about the lives of ordinary people who have met with an extraordinary God and seen their lives transformed!
We believe that God created us to have friendship with Him, but as human beings we messed up and sin entered the world. When you say the word sin, people start trying to explain or excuse behaviour, but it so much more than the wrong stuff we say, do or think. It is basically choosing to live life without God. The result of this sin, is separation from God here on earth and for eternity.
But God loves you so much that He would rather die than be without that friendship.That’s where Jesus comes in. Jesus is right at the centre of the Christian faith. Jesus, the Son of God, who was born in human form, lived a life and then gave that life up because He loves you and me and wanted to make a way to knowing God and being forgiven.
Jesus summed up why He came – “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 – The NIV Bible)
Jesus came to pay the price for the sin in our lives. He died a truly awful death on a Roman Cross, in order to take the blame for our wrong, even though He had done nothing wrong Himself. He offers us a fresh start, forgiveness, purpose in life and the promise of eternity in heaven with Him.

Lord Jesus Christ,
I am sorry for the things I have done wrong in my life. I ask your forgiveness. I turn away from living life without you. Thank you for dying on the cross for me to set me free from my sins, all the wrong stuff I say, do think. Please come into my life and fill me with your Holy Spirit and be with me forever. I want to follow you. Thank you Lord Jesus.
