We at the Macland Road Church of Christ believe Jesus when he said,
All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.
Since Jesus reigns and all are under obligation to Him, we aim to live our lives in an obedient pursuit of Jesus. Jesus has commanded his disciples:
“Go … into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.”
The gospel is our mission; you are our mission!
“What’s the gospel?” The gospel is the good news of what Jesus has done for all men! To make a long story short, we all have sinned against God, and Jesus is God’s answer for the problem of sin.
For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21).
His death upon the cross for the sake of sinners is proof of the amazing love that God has for us!
For one will scarcely die for a righteous person–though perhaps for a good person one would dare even to die–but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:7-8).
But the story does not end there. Triumphantly, Jesus arose from the dead and now lives!
This is but a summary of what we hope to share with you. Now, if you would be interested, there is so much more that we would like to share with about Jesus:
- About His life, death, burial, and resurrection…
- About His church…
- About his purpose for your life…
- About what it truly means to follow Him…
