The core of Christianity is about getting to know Jesus and growing into a relationship with him. Jesus, the Son of God, reveals God’s wholehearted and continual love for us. Jesus lived a life filled with love and mercy. His teaching about God’s kingdom points to a world healed of hatred and violence.

Jesus died a painful death nailed to a cross, and then rose to life again. Through the power of Jesus’ death and resurrection, we are invited into a new and full life with him. You can experience unconditional love and total forgiveness today through the sacraments and through the Holy Spirit.

Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to be his presence in our world. Inviting the Holy Spirit into your life brings you joy and lasting peace and helps you become the very best of version of you—the one God created you to be—in order to make a difference in the world today.

By praying, you can communicate with Jesus as often as you want. Find out more about how to start praying here.
