Is Jesus Too Good to be True? | Connected Through the Cross Part 2

Aug 1, 2021 | Core Values, Jesus, McRae, Chris


“The world and everyone is trying to tell us that you can go around the Cross. But Jesus said, ‘I am the way, the truth and the life. And no one comes to the Father except through me.’ You can’t get around the Cross. You must go through the Cross.”

Is Jesus and the story of the Cross all too good to be true? Lead Pastor Chris McRae guides us through Part 2 of the new series, Connected Through the Cross. We examine again the story of the Cross, and how believing and accepting the story is salvation. The story is not too good to be true, He is miraculous and amazing in all His glory.

“And I, brethren, when I came to you, did not come with excellence of speech or of wisdom declaring to you the testimony of God. For I determined not to know anything among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” – 1 Corinthians 2:1-2
