What is it?
Glad you asked! Well, by the grace of God, we've had the privilege of hosting these "large group" meetings every Thursday night, every year, where we see students' hearts and lives transformed simply by learning about and experiencing Jesus and His amazing grace.
What keeps students coming back every week?
The gospel! "The good news", which is this: it's not about how good we are or what we've done. It's ALL ABOUT how good Jesus is and what HE HAS DONE, for you and for me! Anyone, and we mean anyone in the world, whatever ethnic, religious, or social background - whatever it is - can receive the complete forgiveness of sins, from your past, present, and future, and be called a beloved child of God right now, JUST by believing in Jesus. Sounds so easy right? Well, there was a heavy price.
This Jesus, who created and knew you, who loved you and gave Himself for you, dying on the cross on behalf of your sins, your mistakes, your shame and your judgment, is asking you to come home, to have a new life, a second chance, a clean slate, free of all judgment and condemnation. Your forgiveness is paid for. The work is finished and it is perfect. Your sins are put away. Jesus is saying "Don't be afraid. Just believe".
After all, He came so that you might have life and have it more abundantly! (John 10:10). Friend, God understands what you are going through, in every area of life; He cares about the little details, He cares about you. You may even think, "I've made too many mistakes. I'm not you know, religious...I don't know if God will accept me". You may even have had an unpleasant experience with church or been condemned by certain 'religious' Christians.
Know this though, it's not about religion. It's about a loving relationship, an unfair relationship really, where God gives you everything: He showers you with favor, He blesses your family, He provides for your amazing future, He gives you an unshakable hope for this life, now and forever.
So come find out more! Everyone and anyone is welcome!
