Ascension has been in the Harrisburg area for about 40 years, but the story starts a long time before that.
It began with the first human beings shattering a life of perfect love with God. In amazing mercy, God promised a Savior and in time sent his Son, Jesus Christ, into the world. Jesus was like no other person: he taught with authority and had power over sickness, disease, and even death. He revealed the problem of evil as something within each human heart, and he helped people see this sin in their own lives. But more than that, he provided a way out! Jesus was not simply a teacher; he was the Savior, and through his life and death and resurrection he won forgiveness for all people.
This story continues here today at Ascension, as Jesus Christ still calls people to repentance and promises forgiveness and life through him!
