Start with Jesus!
God created the world and everything in it-including you- and He wants to begin a personal, one-on-one relationship with you today.
Everybody has an opinion about Jesus. Maybe you think He's a great teacher or a prophet. Maybe you doubt His existence. Whatever you believe, we can probably agree that Jesus changed things.
We believe He wants to change you, too.
God, the Creator of the universe, loves you and has a purpose for your life. And because of that, His plans are better than your plans. None of us can measure up to some impossible religious standard to know Him; faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior is the only "step" to salvation.
The message of the Bible is abundantly clear: we have all sinned against God (Romans 3:23). Because of our sin, we deserve to be eternally separated from God (Romans 6:23); but because of His love for us (John 3:16), God took on human form and died in our place, taking the punishment that we deserve (Romans 5:8; 2 Corinthians 5:21). Through His death and resurrection, Jesus took all your wrongs and gave you all His right. If you believe this and commit to following Him, your life will never be the same. It's as simple as turning from your sin, declaring you want to follow Jesus, and believing He is who He says He is.
Have you recently made this decision? Believing in Jesus is the first step on the greatest journey of your life. You haven't finished the race-you've only just begun. The best is yet to come!
Whether you raised your hand in a service or prayed at home to follow Jesus, we would love to come alongside you. Please let us know about your salvation decision, and someone from our Next Steps team will be in touch. If a friend invited you to Hope Community, we encourage you to let them know about your decision; we know they'll want to celebrate with you!
