2000 years ago, Jesus was put to death on a cross in order to make a way for people to know God.
God is perfectly good, a perfect Father. When Jesus died, he took on himself all of our junk - our fears, our shame, our wrongs and in return he gave us his perfectness.
So now we can come before God not trying to be accepted, but counted good because of Jesus.
God is real and moving in the everyday, all around us. As Christians, we are passionately pursuing a relationship through his Holy Spirit who has changed our lives.
