The Good News of the GOSPEL
The Gospel is the GOOD NEWS that by His grace and for His glory, the holy and righteous God made a way for everyone to receive forgiveness of sins - through the life, death, and resurrection of His son, Jesus Christ - by repenting of sin and believing in Jesus alone as Savior and Lord.
WE ARE LOVED: We are more loved than we we'll ever be able to comprehend--by the all-powerful, loving God, who created the universe and human beings in His image and revealed the way to experience a loving relationship with Him.
Genesis 1:26-27; Exodus 19:5-6; Exodus 34:5-7
Through rebellion all human beings have broken their relationship with God by rejecting His way and choosing to live for themselves. This leaves every person and all creation broken and under God's judgement.
Genesis 3:17-19; Romans 1:18-25; Romans 3:9-20; Romans 3:23
WE'RE RESCUED BY JESUS:
God sent His perfect Son to become a human being and at the cross God placed our sin upon Jesus where He was judged and punished in our place. Jesus' victory over sin and death was confirmed when he rose from the dead and God exalted him as King over all.
Isaiah 53:5-6; Romans 3:25-26; 1 Peter 3:18; Romans 1:1-4
We are saved from sin and judgement when we stop trusting in our own efforts and trust in the finished work of Jesus alone to rescue us. By God's grace alone, through repentance and faith, we are reconciled to God and are empowered to live a new life as we follow Jesus our King.
Mark 1:14-15; Ephesians 2:4-9; Romans 10:9-13
His followers are sent and empowered by the Holy Spirit to Share the Good News with others and to demonstrate the blessings of Jesus' kingdom until He returns to make all thing new.
Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 1:4-8; Matthew 24:14; Revelation 21:1-5
What's the NEXT STEP?
Admit that you have sinned.
"For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God." (Romans 3:23)
Believe in your heart that Christ died for your sin.
"The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord." (Romans 6:23) "But God commands His love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." (Romans 5:8)
Confess with your mouth that Jesus is your Savior and Lord.
"If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved." (Romans 10:9)
