Find HOPE this Easter.

Why would Jesus need to take my place? God is perfect, we are not, which creates a massive gap between us and God that we cannot make right in our own power. So, God sent His only Son (Jesus) to willingly pay the price for all of our sin thru His death on the cross. By taking our place, Jesus bridged the gap between us and God once and for all. Jesus was raised from that grave and offers the gift of eternal life for all who believe in Him as their Lord and Savior.
