Who is Jesus?

More than two thousand years ago God sent Jesus Christ into this world. He became one of us, but he did nothing wrong. He showed us what God is like – merciful and kind. He healed the sick people, the blind were made to see, the deaf to hear, the lame to walk. Some people followed him, and to them he gave a new way of life – God’s way. But others hated Him because He was so good, and he exposed their evil ways.

He gave his own life as a sacrifice, a payment for our sins. He died on the cross to save us. Three days after he died, Jesus Christ came back from the dead. Now He lives in the power of an endless life to meet your need, to be your Saviour, to forgive your sins. Jesus Christ is the only one who can do this for you.

Geographical Areas of the Ohio Ministry Network

OMNAreasandRegions_forWebBased on 14 separate groupings of Ohio’s 88 counties, churches and ministry leaders identify locally with a specific geographic area. See the areas listed below for each ministry leader and contact information. Credentialed ministers and non-credentialed ministers associated with churches and ministries in each area gather monthly for area ministers meetings. These incorporate networking, idea sharing, spiritual encouragement, prayer, and special speakers or initiatives during the year. Additionally, statewide ministries, such as Youth Ministries, Girls Ministries, Boys Ministries, etc., all have area representatives who coordinate and serve the leaders of these ministries at the local church level. Contact your Area presbyter or ministry representative for further information … and get connected!
