Please do not look at Christianity and the church as Plan B, but see it as something that our God has had in mind from eternity,

…according to the eternal purpose which He accomplished in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have boldness and access with confidence through faith in Him (Ephesians 3.11–12). 

What God wants is us. He wants us, all of us, regardless of nationality or language or any other human distinction, to be His children, and we have it through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. The Father did not invent this recently, but it has been His eternal purpose for mankind.
