Do You Know Him?
Knowing Jesus and knowing about Jesus are not the same thing. You can go to church your whole life and know everything about Jesus and his teachings, and still not know him.
God did not send his only begotten Son to the cross to die so that we could have book knowledge about him and so we could join some religion. Rather, Jesus died for you and for me so that we could have a deep, intimate, personal love relationship with him. It is this kind of "knowing" that God desires to share with us.

Do Others Know Him?
Are you leading others, by example and personal witness, into their own personal encounter and relationship with Jesus?
There are many in the church who have religion rather than a personal, daily, intimate relationship with Jesus. And those in the world have no idea that all they desperately need can be found in this encounter and daily relationship with God.
This is why we pour our time, energy, talents, and resources into bringing this message of God's passionate love to people all around the world through a virtual 3-D Internet world.
Currently there are more than 7,132,748 people in the virtual community we have been called to reach, and that number grows by 200,000 to 350,000 per week. Help us reach as many of those as possible with the love and life-changing Good News of reconciliation with God through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
Please partner with us today! Ask God what he would have you do as a one-time gift and as a monthly partner.
Additionally, you can ask us to send information about our ministry in the virtual world to your pastor, ministry, or Christian business. When they catch the vision and see what a large and virtually unreached mission field the virtual world is, they will be given the chance to play a part in this powerful outreach. Visit here to request information sent to your church, ministry, or Christian business.
Visit here to become a financial partner or give a one-time gift today. And remember, whatever you do to the least of these, you do unto Jesus.
