Why did Jesus Come?

Why did Jesus Come?

Everyone’s life is shaped by a dominant story. God has been unfolding His Story since before time began. We believe we are participants in the Story and need to understand it and see how our lives intersect with it. Therefore, we regularly reacquaint ourselves with the Story by interacting with God’s Word.

Take some time to read & reflect on these passages that communicate, Jesus purpose.
