Our world moves so fast.

Between 24/7 news cycles, non-stop work schedules and year-round sports activities, families are pulled in multiple directions. 

When do you take time to contemplate and think about the direction of your life? 

Because Jesus is the Author of life, He alone can provide the right direction for your life. At First Baptist New Braunfels, we are called to Lead People to Jesus. If you are a Christ-follower already, then we want to help you grow in your understanding of who God is and how you fit in His plan for His creation. Maybe you are not a believer in Jesus right now. If not, we’d love to share with you about who Jesus is and why He matters to your everyday life. 

More about God and His relationship with us

Our understanding of who God is comes from the Bible. Through Scripture, God reveals His character and nature. He has revealed that He is the creator and humanity is a part of His creation (Genesis 1). God reveals He is holy (Isaiah 6) and brings justice (Psalm 103). God also reveals Himself to be a God of grace (Ephesians 2) and mercy (Psalm 119:56).

Each characteristic of God impacts our life. None greater, perhaps, than the grace and mercy of God. 

Because the first-created humans, Adam and Eve, disobeyed God (Genesis 3), every person since is born with a broken relationship with God. But God, we read in Ephesians 2, has shown us grace by the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus, for the forgiveness of our sin. The Bible says this is a demonstration of God’s love (Romans 5:8) having allowed Jesus to die on the cross. Having died for the punishment of our sin, Jesus made it possible for humanity to be restored to a right relationship with God. This is the Gospel, the good news that through Jesus our sins are forgiven.
