Why Did Jesus Die?

Jesus  dedicated his entire life to God and was obedient to everything that God asked of him. He died to provide us with a way of reconciliation to God and to save us from the prospect of eternal death. Association with Jesus’ sacrifice, through baptism, is the only way we can be saved from sin and death.

“This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief”   -1 Timothy 1:15
