why follow Jesus?

Jesus Christ is the only way to truth and eternal life.
Jesus said of himself, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6. He also told us the reason He came, “The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” John 10:10

Jesus Christ is the greatest person to ever live.
He is the one who has changed the whole course of history. Remove Jesus of Nazareth from history and it would be a completely different story. Consider today’s date on your calendar. It gives witness to the fact that Jesus actually lived on the earth and literally split history in half – B.C. means “Before Christ,” and A.D., anno Domini, is the Latin phrase translated, “in the year of our Lord.”

Jesus Christ has influenced the world for good more than any other.
Wherever His true message has gone, great changes have taken place in the lives of men and nations. The great French military and political leader, Napoleon, described Christ’s influence in this way, “I know men and I tell you that Jesus Christ is no mere man. Between Him and every other person in the world there is no possible term of comparison. Alexander, Caesar, Charlemagne, and I have founded empires. But on what did we rest the creation of our genius? Upon force. Jesus Christ founded His empire upon love; and at this hour millions of men would die for Him.”

Jesus Loves you and offers you the gift of eternal life.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16

His great love assures us that anyone who believes can become a child of God!
