How can I make a difference in a broken world?

Stained Glass Cross


What did Jesus come into the world to do? There are several ways to answer this question, of course. He came to save us from our sins. He came to reveal God's love for all flesh. He came to restore our broken relationship with God. He came to show us how to live.

John tells us that Jesus came to give us the power to become "children of God". He came to give us a new birth, a birth which is from above, a birth into a family that had eternal life...God's family.

John tells us that if we believe in Jesus, if we believe he comes from God and reveals the heart and soul of God then we will be given this new birth and we will become God's children and as His children inherit what only He can give...Eternal life.


"Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world."

John the Baptist
