If you want to help contribute to Ubuntu then you've come to the right place. Keep reading to learn how. We believe there is one true God, eternally existing in three persons; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe God created all things; including all life and the world we live in. We believe the Holy Bible is the Word of God and it is inherent and infallible. We believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God, our Savior and Lord. We believe Jesus was born from a virgin, lived a sinless life on the earth, died for our sins, and rose three days later. We believe in salvation by grace-through-faith in Jesus Christ.

Teams As one part of the Body of Christ, [[http://computers4christians.org/|Computers4Christians]] (C4C) seeks to lead unbelievers to a relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ and nurture believers in discipleship. We offer a free Christian operating system (the [[http://computers4christians.org/C4C.html|C4C Lubuntu ReSpin]]) to anyone with access to the Internet and load our OS on used computers we freely give away. Running this distro live may be also be used to test hardware, wipe hard disk drives and to "rescue" files from a computer that is no longer needed or no longer works properly. Our Christian OS is based on Long Term Support (LTS) point releases of Lubuntu; currently at version 16.04. There are no license fees, nothing to register, and nothing to buy - ever. You may also give this system to others. In fact, we hope you do.

[[http://computers4christians.org/|Computers4Christians]] adds an array of Christian software and media, as well as many useful secular packages to [[http://lubuntu.me/|Lubuntu]] 16.04, with the [[http://openbox.org/|Openbox]] window manager and [[http://lxde.org/|LXDE]] desktop. The freely available 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the [[http://computers4christians.org/Download.html|C4C Lubuntu ReSpin OS]] runs live from [[http://computers4christians.org/Download/DVD.html|DVD]] or [[http://computers4christians.org/Download/USB.html|USB]] flash drive, and is easily installed via Systemback on most any computer made in the last decade. Systemback is built-in and allows the end-user to easily create restore points and backups of their specific system. The pre-installed Firefox web browser includes search engines like Bible.cc, Duck Duck Go, Google, Kiddle, Linux Manpages and Ubuntu Documentation. Our Firefox build also includes literally hundreds of categorized bookmarks; from learning about Linux to learning about the Lord - it's in there. And the [[https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/foxfilter/|FoxFilter]] parental control extension helps filter out inappropriate content on the web.

As an active member of our community, you probably should check out what else is going on in the world of Ubuntu: C4C collects used computers; freely given, by Christians and others. We wipe hard disks, mix and match parts and make working machines we then give away to whomever requests one in an area we serve. We've given away several hundred "born again" computers and many thousands of copies of our Christian Operating System have been downloaded. We pray each and every computer and/or Christian OS given will help bring the user(s) to Christ, or closer to God. [[http://computers4christians.org/Chapters.html|C4C Chapters]] are needed everywhere - our hope is that many others will start one.
