The Meaning of Christmas

It’s far from the hustle and bustle surrounding gift-giving, Santa, shopping and food. Instead, Christmas is the time of year when we remember God’s love for humanity, the gift of his only son Jesus Christ, the Bible and the promise of eternal life. The Christmas story is truly one of humility, awe and peace.

Happy Birthday Jesus

Christmas, which is observed on December 25 each year, is the celebration of the birth of Jesus. The origins of Christmas is a transformative event that unfolded around 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem.

Christ’s birth changed history, transforming the manner through which human beings interact with the Almighty. Jesus’ birth was a fulfillment of prophecy and his sacrifice on the cross saved humanity.
