Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem and raised in Nazareth. The Holy Bible teaches us that Jesus Christ's mother was Mary. It was the will of the Heavenly Father that Jesus, the incarnate Son of God, should grow up within a human family environment. When Jesus Christ turned to the age of 30, He began a three-year ministry of teaching, blessing, and healing the people of the Holy Land. Jesus suffered and was crucified for the sins of the world, giving each of God’s children the gift of repentance and forgiveness.
