What happens to people who never hear about Jesus?
Unfortunately, they will be forever cut off from the presence of God. Christ himself make this abundantly clear when he says, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I DIE?

Why do I need redemption?
Whether you believe it or not, your sin has condemned you to an eternal life separated from God.

Unbelief can arise from three things: a genuine unawareness of the Christian faith; preconceived notions […]
Was Jesus’ Resurrection real? Is He alive today?
