    About God:

    How do you describe the indescribable? If all the seas turned ink, all the plant to writing tools, and all the sky to parchment, it would not be enough to describe God's vastness. That's the God I serve.

    If you're interested in learning more about God, you can leave a message here, you could go to this site and leave a message or you can read on.



    God
  • God loves you (John 3:16).
  • God is holy and just. He punishes all evil and expels it from his presence (Romans 1:18).

    People
  • God, who created everything, made us for himself to find our purpose in fellowship with him (Colossians 1:16).
  • But we rebelled and turned away from God (Isaiah 53:6) The result is separation from God (Isaiah 59:2). The penalty is eternal death (Romans 6:23).

    Christ
  • God became human in the person of Jesus Christ to restore the broken fellowship (Colossians 1:19-20). Christ lived a perfect life (1 Peter 2:22).
  • Christ died as a substitute for us by paying the death penalty for our rebellion (Romans 5:8). He arose (1 Corinthians 15:3-4) and is alive today to give us a new life of fellowship with God, now and forever (John 10:10).

    Response
  • I must repent for my rebellion (Matthew 4:17).
  • I must believe Christ died to provide forgiveness and a new life of fellowship with God (John 1:12)
  • I must receive Christ as my Savior and Lord with the intent to obey him. I do this in prayer by inviting him into my life (Revelation 3:20).
    Cost
  • There is no cost to your salvation comes to you freely (Ephesians 2:8-9).
  • But it comes at a high cost to God (1 Peter 1:18-19).
  • Ultimately your response is a life of discipleship (Luke 9:23-24).

    I'm making a comeback

    What do Otter pops, Converse All Stars, and I all have in common?

    We're all making a memorable come-back.

    Who am I?

    Alexis. I'm young. Smart. Funny. Opinionated. Fun. AND I love God. What's cooler? Uh... ice.

    My Education

    For five years I've attended a private Catholic school. I've gone to Mass every Thursday at 8 AM since I was 9 (yeah. I'm a young'un) and I've had religion classes all throughout. You want the truth? I'm going to miss my religion class next year at public school.

    Thats right. Me. I'm going to miss talking about God. A subject I sometimes hide from in order to escape embarrassment. But you know what? I'm not embarrassed anymore.

    Oh and another thing about me... I can't spell. So don't get on my case. I do my best.

    My home

    My family isn't divided by divorce... it's actually really small. For a Catholic family. (Was that a dis? I dunno.) Theres my dad, mom, sister, and I... and I only have four cousins. Wow... that is small. Sometimes I wish I had a bigger family, but I'm happy with the family I have. They're grrrrrreat.

    My friends

    I have a few different sort of friends. School, acting, camp, and church friends. They're all different... Sadly, we never talk about church often. My school friends, when they do, only put it down, but I think they might find comfort in the Church too.

    My secret

    One time I had a dream. In it I was sitting with a few friends on the ground in my school's Church. We were just leaning against the pews talking. When I look back on this I think it's me showing myself that the Church works in my life daily. I also think it means I find comfort there, and enjoy it.... either way, I'm not complaining.


    Anyways, I'm really excited for this. I've found out a lot about myself and God in the past weeks, and I'm anxious to share.

    See you all later!

    Hey, I get it, Meggido!

    WELCOME BACK ALEXIS!!! I'm so excited to see you here. Even if you don't understand what the Church teaches or why, keep asking questions and pushing for answers cuz that's the best way to get at the Truth! And I'm so so happy you're back!!! If you couldn't tell ;)
