Who is God?

Who is God?
God is the designer and creator of the universe. God is eternal, all knowing, all powerful, omni-present, holy, just, merciful, and loves each person he created. He created people to commune with him, and gave us a free will, so we may chose to love and commune with him in return.

Who is Jesus?
Jesus was a man who was miraculously born to a virgin in Bethlehem, south of Jerusalem, in 4 BC. During the last three years of his life, Jesus preformed miracles for individuals and large crowds, such as raising his friend from the dead, turning water into wine at a wedding, curing blindness, and feeding 5,000 people from only a small amount of food, etc.

He lived a perfect life, without sin, until age 33 when his political enemies had him sentenced to death after an illegal trial. He was tortured and executed by being nailed to a cross. Three days later, he rose from the dead, appeared to his friends, and a crowd of 500, proving that he was in fact God. Jesus was the ultimate sacrifice for the sin of everyone which allows people to reconnect with God, the creator. ​

How Can I Have a Relationship with God?
Because God loves us, he wants us to live fulfilling lives, recognizing who he is and worshiping him. When we chose to ignore God, or live in a why that is opposed to his character, we sin and separate ourselves from him. Human nature is to be self-serving, so we naturally do sin, and need to reconnect with Him.

Because God is just, he provided a way to make amends for the wrongs we have done. He instituted a sacrificial system to make atonement for people's sin. That system was in place from the time the first people, Adam and Eve, sinned until Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice for all humankind.

Now, all we have to do is believe that Jesus was, and is, God, and that he paid the price for our sins . We will want to live in a way that will help us become as much like God's own character as possible. Often, people find it helpful to pray and ask God to forgive their sins, and thank him for providing the means for their sins to be forgiven. By doing so, we can have a fulfilling relationship with God.
