It all begins with God's love for you. God created you and gives purpose to your life. It is because of that love that Jesus came to live on earth. He was conceived by the Holy Spirit, being born of a virgin in the town of Bethlehem some 2,000 years ago. He lived a life without any sin, and yet He was sentenced to be executed by the authorities of His day. Jesus was crucified, being nailed to a cross. Scriptures teach us that His death paid the price for the sins of every person in the world. Following His death, on the third day, Jesus was raised to life again. His resurrection means that you and I do not need to fear death but can know eternal life through Him.
