While our intention was to show different religious practices in a fair light, we also want to be sure we clarify for people our conviction that religion isn't the answer. Religion promises favor with God in exchange for action – often mindless rituals. There's nothing we can do to earn God's favor; His favor is a free gift. We believe that it is possible to have a life-changing, personal relationship with Jesus Christ, which fulfills us in a way nothing else can. That belief is strengthened daily as Christ takes positive action in our lives. We've come to know Jesus apart from all of the nonsense that claims His name. Sadly, so much that passes for Christianity is not about this relationship, but about religion. Generations of people in Europe grow up learning all the tired "Christian" traditions without ever having an opportunity to learn about and know Jesus personally. We think that this is a horrible tragedy. Our work is about providing an opportunity for people to meet the genuine and living Jesus Christ and be forever changed by a relationship with Him.
