Who is God

God is the Creator and Ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal and are one God. God loved you so much that He created you so that you can have a relationship with Him.

(Genesis 1:1,26-27; 3:22; Psalm 90:2; Matthew 28:19; John 3:16; 2 Corinthians 13:14; 1 Peter 1:2)

What is Sin

Sin is what separates us from God. It isolates us and puts a wall between us and God. Sin is really rebellion against God. It’s something in our very nature that causes us to choose to do our own thing rather than choosing to do things God’s way.

The fact is nobody is perfect. Romans 3:23 tells us that “Everyone has sinned and fallen short of God’s glorious standard.” In fact sin is responsible for both our physical and spiritual death. Romans 6:23 says, “The payment for sin is death. But God gives us the free gift of life forever in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

(Exodus 34:7; Isaiah 53:6; Galatians 5:19-21; Colossians 3:5-6; 1 John 1:7-9)

Who is Jesus

Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He is co-equal with the Father, who is God. Jesus lived a sinless human life and offered Himself as the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all mankind by dying on a cross. He arose from His grave after being bodily dead for three days. He did this to show His power over sin and death. Jesus ascended to Heaven’s glory and will return again to reign as King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

(Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 1:22-23; John 1:1-5; 14:10-21; Acts 1:9-11; Romans 1:3-4; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4; 1 Timothy 6:14-15, Titus 2:13; Hebrews 4:14-15)

What is Salvation

Salvation is a gift from God to humankind. Humankind can never make up for sin by self-improvement or good works. Only by trusting in Jesus Christ as God’s offer of forgiveness can a person be saved from sin’s penalty. Eternal life begins the moment one receives Jesus Christ into his life by faith.

(John 1:12; 14:6; Romans 5:1; 6:23; 10:13; Galatians 3:26; Ephesians 2:8-9; Titus 3:5; 1 Peter 3:18)

 

Salvation Prayer: Lord, I thank you for my new life and I acknowledge that I am a sinner and that my sin caused you to go to the cross to die for my sins. You rose from the dead and conquered hell and death, and now sit at the right hand of the Father. I am born again, I’ve been set free, and I have been given a new life. Amen
