God created us in His own image to be His friend and to experience a full life assured of His love.
But He didn’t make us robots—He gave us the freedom to choose.
What do you think it means to really live life to the fullest?
How are God and mankind different?
Mankind has chosen to disobey God and thus become separated from Him.
This separation means the penalty of an eternal spiritual death.

Why did Christ die?
Believing means trust and commitment — acknowledging our sinfulness, trusting Christ’s forgiveness, and letting Him control our life.
Eternal life is a gift for us to receive.
