So, here's the story:
God created an amazing paradise on earth. In an act of selfishness and pride by humans like us, that paradise was lost and all of creation was broken as a result. (Genesis 3)
For many centuries, God continued to show amazing grace while people continued to wait for the day when all things would be made new. Through saving Noah and his family during a flood (Genesis 6-9), to rescuing Israel from the Egyptians (Exodus 5-15), and a multitude of other examples, God was showing up and showing us that there was a plan in place.
A little more than 2,000 years ago, Jesus, the Son of God, showed up on the scene. He did what no imperfect human being was able to do: he gave his life as the full payment for the sins (rebellion) of all humanity, giving us the opportunity to re-establish relationship with God (Matthew 26-27).
But, staying dead wouldn't have been helpful! Jesus proved his power over sin and death by rising from the dead on the third day (Matthew 28), proving that there is no obstacle too big that can keep us separated from him!
When Jesus left, he gave his disciples (followers of Jesus) the Holy Spirit (Acts 1-2), which is the very presence of God that dwells inside of those who have placed their trust in him. From then until now, billions of followers of Jesus have lived this new type of life, empowered by the sustaining grace and power of God which is present in us through the Holy Spirit.
We still live in a broken world. But there is light at the end of the tunnel. We belong to an incredible kingdom which continues to advance on this earth with light, love, and life. One day, Jesus will return and bring the completion of his work, making right all that has been wrong, restoring all that has been broken, and bringing justice where it has been absent. (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17)
In the meantime, we continue to work, spreading the hope that is found in Jesus with anyone who will listen. Whether believer or skeptic, you are welcome to join us on the journey!
