Why Christmas?

Each of the four Sundays in December will feature messages that will answer this important question, Why did Jesus come? The Bible gives us the reasons for His incarnation. During these four weeks, we will talk about them and receive the gifts God has given to us in His Son.

We know that Jesus came as a baby to earth. We know about the manger, the shepherds, and the host of angels, but why? Why did Jesus come?

The biblical authors, in a number of places, including in the words of Jesus Himself, give the reasons why. Often these statements contain the words such as this, “I have come that…”, or, “The reason the Son of God appeared was…”.

Without the reasons for the mission of Christ firmly planted in our minds, His coming can settle into cute sentimentality. However, by knowing why Christ came, and why Christmas, we can better know and follow Jesus and make Him known.

This December, we embark on a 4-week journey of searching the Bible for these reasons.

These reasons are gifts given to us from God the Father, wrapped up in the life of His Son.

They are also invitations to those who don’t know Jesus to come and find life in Him, as they’ve never known before.

Pastor Jody and Band will lead an evening of familiar carols and newer Christmas songs with beautiful arrangements, along with stories that will help you focus on the miracle of the incarnation.
