Do you secretly wonder if there's more to life... but feel stuck?
Nothing is more basic or central to knowing and enjoying God than union with Christ. It's what the Bible is all about. It's the heart of the Christian faith. It's what makes the gospel good news.
Yet if you ask most people today, "What is the gospel?" union with Christ is probably not what springs to mind. For many, union with Christ feels vague and shadowy, not central or basic. And this loss has real and drastic consequences for how we see ourselves and experience life with God.
