Thanks so much for checking out our Stories of Hope. The common thread of these stories is their connection to Jesus Christ. Please take a minute to read about these stories below the video icons.

God, through His bible, explains four truths that lead us into an impactful relationship with Him.

First, God really cares about each of us on a personal level. He wants to hand us heaven, daily help, and a meaningful life.

In John 10, Christ claims, “I came that they might have life, and have it abundantly”. 

Second, the bible points out we “all have sinned…” (Romans 3:23): wrongful actions, thoughts, or words.

That’s what makes us “…separated from God…” (Isaiah 59:2) 

The third truth is God came as a man, Jesus. He died on the cross and rose from the grave for us. This is the Easter story we celebrate each spring. 

“Christ died for our sins once for all…to bring us to God…” (1 Peter 3:18).

It is not enough to just know these 3 truths…

The fourth truth is that eternal life is a gift that can’t be earned or deserved. It only comes through receiving Jesus Christ.

“…this (salvation) is not from yourselves (no matter how good or bad we’ve been), it is the gift of God…” (Ephesians 2:8-9) 
“…(Jesus speaking) I stand at the door (of your heart) and knock. If anyone…opens the door, I will come in…” (Revelations 3:20)

So, to bridge the separation, receive the gift of eternal life, and to connect personally to God, pray something like this in your own words:

I admit that I sin, forgive me. 
I believe You died on the cross for me.
Come into my life.
