For God so loved the world that he gave His only Son. Whoever puts his trust in God's Son will not be lost but will have life that lasts forever!

Life that lasts forever? 

I don’t know about you, but if this last year has taught me anything - it’s that nothing seems to last forever. Nothing feels certain. In the blink of an eye our lives can be turned upside down. So what does the bible mean when it talks about life that lasts forever?

That’s the message of Jesus - that for everyone who puts their trust in him death will not be the end. Just like Jesus came back from the dead so will they. But this life that lasts forever doesn’t start when we die, no, it starts now! Jesus taught us a whole new way to live, one that brings life to every area of our lives and it begins now. The question is, will you put your trust in him?
