Get to Know Jesus

Jesus Christ is the first step on your faith journey. Entering into a relationship with Him enables you to take your next steps with God. First, get to know Him.

Who is Jesus?

He is God the Son, eternally one with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit.
Jesus declares and shows Himself as God in these 7 verses:

1. Jesus said He was God

Matthew 26:63-65 “But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, ‘I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Christ, the Son of God.’ ‘Yes, it is as you say,’ Jesus replied. ‘But I say to all of you: In the future you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of the Mighty One and coming on the clouds of heaven.’ Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, ‘He has spoken blasphemy! Why do we need any more witnesses? Look, now you have heard the blasphemy.'”

2. Jesus said He came from Heaven, God’s eternal dwelling place

John 6:38 “For I have come down from heaven not to do my will but to do the will of him who sent me.”

3. Jesus said He was sinless, as God alone is without sin

John 8:46 “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin? If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?”

4. Jesus forgave sin

Luke 7:48, 49 “Then Jesus said to her, ‘Your sins are forgiven.’ The other guests began to say among themselves, ‘Who is this who even forgives sins?’ ”

5. Jesus said He was the only way to Heaven

John 14:6 “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.'”

6. Jesus accepted worship as God

John 9:38 “Then the man said, ‘Lord Jesus, I believe,’ and he worshiped him.”

7. Jesus performed miracles including raising others and himself from the dead

Matthew 4:23 “Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.”

So Now What?

Now that you know who He is, accept Him into your life. The Bible says that if we accept Jesus for who He is, then we will be forgiven of our sins and will begin a new life in Him. If you are ready to do that, pray this prayer.

Jesus, I know I have sinned. I need Your forgiveness. I accept You as Savior and believe that You died and rose again for my sins. I accept Your gift of grace and I now want to live for you. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me and for giving me a new life. 

If you prayed that prayer, we would like to celebrate with you. Please let us know. This is just the first step in your faith journey and we would like to help you continue on your way.
